Key Lime Bars

5 Jun

The last month has been such a doozy. The yearbook has been sent and I am happy to have time again!

It is time for the Leftovers Club once again. This month I was paired with Elizabeth Cavallari, the founder of the club and blogger at Food Ramblings. I really appreciate everything she does to organize and coordinate the club, so I wanted to make her one of my favorite treats: Key Lime Bars. If I could pick just one recipe that reminds me of my mom, it would be these. She loves them and gave me this wonderful recipe!

    The layers in these bars look amazing. Love the luscious layer of lime curd in there.
