Lemon Squares

So these are my favorite lemon squares, as I previously promised to share them, here they are. I was first introduced to these squares on an Ultimate Frisbee weekend. One of the kids I was with brought them and from then on they have been known as Tegan’s Mom’s Squares. They are tangy and delicious and not overly eggy (it grosses me out when there are too many eggs in lemon items, I swear I can taste them!) These are awesome for work type events as they are a) nut free, an important feature given the current proliferation of nut allergies and b) they make a 9×13 tray of squares, perfect for sharing and ensuring that there are leftovers!
