Sweet Lemon Memories

Mom died a year and a half ago. She was a big part of our lives. I find that when I miss her most it helps to cook something she loved. It brings happy memories. So today, for my birthday, I made one of her favorite cookies: Lemon Bars.

As with many of my recipes, we change it  to be Gluten-Free. For this recipe you only need to replace regular all purpose flour for those of you who do not need to follow a gluten-free diet.

Enjoy!
