What you are looking at is a little slice o' heaven.
When I was in San Fransisco, I had the pleasure of meeting an old friend for an insane breakfast at Tartine. I have been wanting to go there for quite sometime, so you can imagine how much we ordered. Oh, and we're both preggers.
After stuffing myself with a swiss chard/gruyere quiche, and a pan au chocolate, I had to take a lemon bar "to go".
To go means, to eat during the car ride home.
These lemon bars are INSANE!! Perfectly tart, and on a brown butter shortbread crust. What's not to love? Okay, maybe the calories, but I assure you, they are worth every one.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree-my dad happens to be down right in love with lemon bars, so when he was here a couple of weeks ago, I made the recipe from the Tartine cookbook.
They were exactly the same. Amazing.
So, if you too, happen to have a love affair with lemon bars, do yourself a favor, and get to baking.
