Vietnamese Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

These bars look much better than their taste as I used vietnamese lemons to make them. It should be made of yellow lemons which I have to go to “chợ tạm Phùng Hưng” to buy, but I was too lazy this morning that I tried to replace with Vietnamese lemons. They made my lemon bars too sour although I have added some sugar on the surface. Lesson learnt: If you’re feel like lazy, don’t do Anything! :))

Recipe from, I might love the lemon layer but the crust was not for me, it tastes like a Melting Moment I tried before. So next time I might try this again with a tart crust 😀 hope that would work 😛

– 50gr sugar

Now let’s go:
