Perfect Lemon Bars

I had so many egg yolks left over from those disastrous milano cookies from the daring bakers challenge, I didn’t want them to go to waste.

So, I decided to make something great out of something not so great…I made lemon bars. I have made these before and remember them being really, really good. My memory served me well and they were just as good as I remember them.
What I love about this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Christmas Cookie book is that the lemon curd is so good. It is just the right thickness and has the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Eli was so impatient waiting to try these (made the curd in the evening and then made the crust the next morning) that he almost became annoying with “are they ready yet”.
Everyone enjoyed them, even the neighbors!
