Katie Couric's Lemon Bars

50 mins (prep 5, cooking 45)
7 ingredients

I tore this recipe out of People magazine in the May 14, 2012 edition. Katie Couric says this recipe is a tradition and the perfect treat for Mother's Day. They are a little cakey on the bottom and then gooey like a delicious lemon pie and tart like lemon drop candies. I used cake flour and got great results. You can use all purpose flour as well. Delicious!
