It’s finally starting to feel like summer here in Ohio, which typically means two things: The pool is officially open for the season, and you can find me in the kitchen whipping up all of my favorite summer desserts like strawberry tart, s’mores pie, and these lemon bars.

Not all of the recipes here on My Baking Addiction immediately become a household favorite, but this lemon bar recipe has been one of my go-to summer desserts for over 10 years!

The buttery crust, tart lemon filling and sweet sugar dusting is a match made in summer dessert heaven. Serve them chilled for the perfect ending to any summer meal!

We are a family of sugar cookie lovers. Chewy sugar cookies, soft sugar cookies, lemon sugar cookies – if it’s a sugar cookie, my family is going to love it.

But I am not always down with the time it actually takes to make sugar cookies, especially cut-out or frosted ones.

But these Sugar Cookie Bars? They hit our sugar cookie sweet spot and they’re quick to make.

I have made these countless times since I first shared this recipe back in the early days of My Baking Addiction and they have remained a favorite. They’re super versatile since you can top them with any seasonal sprinkles you like or color the frosting for everything from Halloween to the 4th of July.

I know your family will love these Sugar Cookie Bars just as much as mine does!

I feel like we’re pretty much stuck in an endless winter situation here in Ohio.

Yes, I know it’s only February. And yes, I also know that us midwesterners should be used to these dramatic weather changes, but it’s still annoying and I’m still going to whine about it.

Guys, it was 65 degrees 2 days ago and now we are expecting yet another winter storm.

One thing I do love about snow days is that Elle and I can get into the kitchen and whip up simple desserts that she can make almost entirely be herself.

Easy recipes like peanut butter pretzel bars, rice krispie treats and these raspberry bars are amongst some of our snow day favorites.

I used to count down the days until I could buy the Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar. But now I have my own recipe, and honestly, it’s even better!

Cranberry is such a wonderful flavor that deserves more attention all year long. I’m not complaining about it getting its due in winter, though.

The flavors in these cranberry bars are similar to another copycat recipe of mine, glazed orange scones, as well as my cranberry orange bread and cranberry orange cinnamon rolls.

What can I say, I love the combo of cranberry and orange!

I don’t know if you happened to catch my post last week for Key Lime Pie Ice Cream, but I’ve pretty much been obsessed with key lime everything since then, so I thought it was the perfect time to share these super simple Key Lime Pie Bars with you.

They’ve been on the site for ages, but they were definitely in need of a little refresh, so I tweaked the recipe and added new photos.

And now I’m just over here contemplating what key lime dessert to whip up next!
