Gluten Free Lemon Bars
The gorgeous Mediterranean climate of the Napa Valley provides us with perfect weather to grow a lot of our produce. Each season, our lemon tree can be depended upon to produce the most delicious Meyer lemons. We often use the juice of the lemons in our famous lemon ricotta pancakes, (recipe found in our cookbook!), but we decided to give lemon bars a shot this time around. There’s nothing quite like having a fresh and colorful lemon bar on a rainy day (or any other day)!
