Recipe: Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Squares

Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Squares

 

I’ve been searching for a great Meyer Lemon Square.

This past week I found one on the Land O’Lakes website, but  it was only for regular lemons. I personally love Meyer lemons since they are more sweet than sour. I have been looking forward to trying them in this recipe!

I really enjoy searching for new recipes, especially when I find ones that are easy and tasty.

  1. These turned out just the way the pictures say.

    I substituted the potato starch with half tapioca flour and half arrowroot flour,

    and it worked out beautifully. I must admit I used ordinary lemons. AR
