Gluten-Free Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are always the best on the 2nd day

Abigail requested lemon bars for her birthday party this week.  We all got to enjoy the treat and help her celebrate turning 9.

This is a delicious recipe without flour and uses maple syrup or honey instead of sugar.  They are excellent!
