I make a lemon cake that we are awfully fond of here in my house . . . a Lemon and Chocolate Chip Cake. It's really good, with a nice lemon flavoured cake and just a hit of chocolate chunks throughout. Lemon and chocolate are actually a very nice flavour combination. It's true.
Especially when combined in these delicious teatime treats . . . with their vanilla shortbread cookie base . . . all crisp and buttery on the bottom . . .
All that melted semi sweet chocolate sandwiched in the middle . . .
Ohhh, and that rich luciously tart lemon curd mixture baked on top. These delightful bars please on many levels . . .
Pretty to look at . . . crisp and sweet . . . luciously lemony . . . with a devilish chocolate centre. What's not to like I ask?? Indeed!!
