Strawberry Lemon Cookie Bars with Lemon Glaze

May 25, 2016

As soon as the weather starts getting warmer I start to get a craving for lemon desserts! I am not a huge fan of anything sour but the combination of sweetness paired with the tartness of a lemon is just a perfect combination.These strawberry lemon cookie bars are made with fresh strawberries and lemons for a refreshing summertime dessert.
