Sue’s lemon squares
Sue is one of my friends who from time to time makes me dream about her baking, every time me & my friends gather, I always look for what she brings first because it’s always something delicious. One of her popular recipe is this lemon square, which I use to TAG my fellow bloggers for a “recipe try-out tag”.
