Weight Watchers Lemon Bars Recipe

We make this dessert with a shortbread crust. I love shortbread, and in this case, it cuts some of the tang of the lemon. It’s a match made in heaven!

A delicious, tangy dessert with fresh lemon, eggs, powdered sugar, flour, and vanilla extract.

This recipe makes 16 servings and has 153 calories per serving.
