These Strawberry Lemon Bars are bringing back some good memories. Like drinking pink lemonade on a hot summer’s day. I know you’re going to love the sweet and tart flavors of these bars!

Making Strawberry Lemon Bars with Fresh Strawberries

Did you know, Fresh From Florida strawberries are in season right now? That’s right! It’s important to eat seasonally if you want to eat more nutritious and fresher foods.

Why? Since, out of season produce is usually picked early and shipped all over (which takes time), it loses some of its nutrients.

I’m so thankful I have access to super fresh strawberries grown right here in Florida. I found these Fresh From Florida Strawberries at Publix. I also got my lemons from Florida. My neighbor has Meyer Lemon trees! Thanks neighbor!

Thanks to Florida Farmers I can eat local and seasonal foods year-round!

Strawberry Lemon Bars Recipe Tutorial

Just to note, I played around with this recipe a little bit. I tried making more dough, so that I could make a tart instead of a bar. They turned out pretty good, but I liked the bars better.

For the tutorial, I had to use some of the images for the tart. I had some technical issues and had to improvise.

Mixing flour and pads of butter together to form dough

1. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together.

9. To make the Strawberry Lemon Bars, you’ll want to roll out the dough to fit on the bottom of the pan.

If you want to make a Strawberry Lemon Tart, roll out the dough big enough to go up the sides of the pan. (I’ll give you the ingredients below.)

10. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

11. For the Strawberry Lemon Bars, place a single layer of strawberries on top of the dough.

For the TART, add enough strawberry layers to fill in 3/4 of the dough’s height.
