My thoughts turn to lemony foods and beverages when the weather begins to warm up and the sun shines bright. I guess it's the bright lemon yellow color and the refreshing coolness of lemonade that cause that. I turned to this particular recipe due to it's simplicity. You start with a oatmeal cookie mix and add the delicious lemon layer make a wonderful Lemon Creme Bar.
