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.
