Recipe: Euro Pane's lemon squares
Many lemon bars are either too sweet or much too tangy. Euro Pane's is just the perfect combination. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)

Dear SOS:

Many lemon bars are either too sweet or much too tangy. Euro Pane's is just the perfect combination. The base is crumbly yet firm. They also serve really large portions. I always love picking up a couple and putting them in the fridge. They taste so much better cold, well at least for me. There have been many times when these bars run out, so I always have to call to make sure they can set aside a couple. I'm sure this bar will become a staple in dessert menus in many homes. It will in mine.

Dear Monica:

With a custard that uses more than a cup of lemon juice, there is no shortage of bright, fresh lemon flavor in these wonderful bars, from Euro Pane in

Pasadena

. Neither too tart nor too sweet, they're baked atop a crisp but tender shortbread crust, making for a snack that's hard to resist.
