Key Lime Bars

 

I never have been into lemon bars. I like them, but they aren’t anything amazing to me. Lime is much more up my alley.  Awhile back I decided to play around with the idea of a lime bar. I loooove a yummy graham cracker crust and I love crumbles on top of things so I decided to give it a whirl. Hubby thought there was too much crumble on top, but like I said, I love it! The graham bottom and crumble were all buttery and delicious while the filling is creamy and has that lime zip to it. A for sure must before the summer weather is gone forever!

 

Also, if you happen to have a favorite lemon bar do share because I would love to find a yummy version!

  1. How do I print a copy of a recipe from this site? I would love to print the Yummy Lime Bar recipe, but can’t seem to figure out how?

  2. Looks delicious Carri, Cade is crazy the crumbs look scrumptious.

  3. Can there be too many crumbs on top?!! Not!
    These look like the best lime bars I have ever seen. I had to get a new computer so I don't have my printer hooked up, I am going to have to hand write this scrumptious recipe.

    I am so glad you mentioned the Women's Expo as we are Oremites too, I want to make it to it, but we have Tuahcahn tickets for Friday and Stake Conference Saturday, maybe I could squeeze it in in the afternoon. Thanks for the heads up on that.

    Yum yum for Sunday dinner or Labor Day!

  4. I am a huge fan of limes and lemons and your lime bars look fab! It reminds me of a chocolate bar I make, but never thought to change it up. Need to try this one! Joni
