When I hear sugar cookie bars I think of something dry and crumbly. Maybe that's because I've never had one before... So when I saw this recipe I decided to give it a try. It was soft, moist, almost brownie like. It tastes just like a soft lemon sugar cookie with strawberries. Delicious. Perfect for any occasion!
