Hi.

Welcome to my blog. A place to document my journey through life via the things I love most.

Lemon Cookie Bar

I love a fresh lemon flavour on my dessert platters. It's nice to have a lighter flavour to balance all that chocolate and nut. This has a beautiful light sweet cookie base, married with a smooth and zesty lemon cream cheese.

Sprinkle this with some yellow sugar and fresh zest before serving to dress it up a notch.
