Lemons Bars

Ι wanted to make this dessert since my early days of blogging! Today was the day to finally try it and bring it to the #coolartisan reality! It turns up to be a totally cool and velvet cream, completely smooth and refined! To achieve perfect results you should  bake the cake in a rectangular baking pan like those we use to make horizontal tarts.
