Love lemon bars? I have a to-die-for recipe that people request I make and now? These Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bars might make the choice harder.
I love lemon anything and Meyer lemons add an amazing flavor to recipes, so when Frieda’s sent me a bag of this beautiful citrus, I knew just what they would be used for. Meyer Lemons aren’t as tart as regular lemons and they have a faint scent of thyme.
They are absolutely delicious to work with and I love using them because you can cut down on added sugar and still get that mouthwatering go-back-for-more taste in your mouth. In fact, my mouth is watering for these decadently easy bars right now.
Lemon blueberry is one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations and a quick scatter of blueberries across this lemon dessert makes it look so gourmet and decadent but keeps it “cooks easy”. I recommend you make some ASAP. If you can’t find Meyer lemons, reach out to Frieda’s and they will see if they can get them into your local grocery store.
