Treat Day Wednesday–Snow Day Lemon Bars


Today is not only Treat Day but it’s also a Snow Day!!!!  ok, I’m not that excited about it but everyone on our street is uber excited.  They all want to spend all day outside.  I guess after 40 years of 4 months of snow each year, it’s not that big of a deal to me.  The girls are loving it too!

So what do you make on a snow day???? Well lemon bars of course!  I decided to try a new recipe.  It all started with some Nilla wafers and some lemons.  40 minutes later these came out of the oven.



  • 1/2 package Nilla wafers crushed
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • Juice of 2 lemons plus the zest of one lemon
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  1. Mix the butter and crushed Nila wafers and press into an 8” square pan.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  2. Combine the eggs, lemon juice, sugar, flour and zest together.  Pour over baked crust and put it back into the oven for 20 more minutes.
  3. Let cool and then slice into bars.
  4. Enjoy!


These are divine!  Simple, clean and wondrous, just like fresh fallen snow!

Thanks for looking!
