As such, I'm pretty sure she'll be thrilled to receive 1 dozen Classic Lemon Bars from Schmerty's Cookies, delivered to her door in a signature white box. The bars claim to offer "the perfect balance between sweet and tart" - and they look absolutely scrumptious.

Homemade cookies, brownies, and other treats can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. - making it a perfect gift option for any special occasion. After all, who wouldn't want to hear the doorbell ring and find a lovely box of Peanut Butter Cookies or Coconutty Samoa Brownies waiting for them?
Schmerty's also offers photo cookies and greeting card cookies for those times when you want to add a personal touch.

As a born and irredeemable chocolaholoic, I have a confession to make: my most favorite baked good is the Classic Lemon Bar.
A good Lemon Bar is totally addictive and I am absolutely convinced it very healthy with both known and secret cleansing and revitalizing qualities.
That said: YUMMO!

While lemon bars are really yummy, my favorite is a raspberry bar.

Bar desserts are always interesting. love the taste, but just based on tongue feel as they are eaten, know that they are loaded with calories, but what the heck.

I have never heard of Schmerty’s Cookies. Their Lemon bars look wonderfully Grand and would like to try them!
Lemon Bars were Mom's favorite. I made them for the family dinner the day we lost her (4-28-08) so Lemon Bars have become a new spring tradition for our family. I'd love to have someone else bake a batch this year!
My grandma used to make the best lemon bars. Haven't had ones as good since (but always willing to try!).

Yummy! Lemon Bars... one of my favorites, especially in the spring and summer.
Fun! I never think to buy lemon bars, as I usually get my fix a couple times a year thanks to my mom. But I LOVE lemons!! Perfect treat for spring too.
I checked out their shop and it is delightful! They make a large variety of special goodies and I like that they are kosher and preservative free.
I will definitely use their site because we send lots of food items as gifts. Many thanks, Cindi

I would take lemon bars over brownies anyday! These look incredible, I love that schmerty's is a family run business, too!
How great that they don't use preservatives and can deliver anywhere. Lemon bars are my all time favorite dessert too, although my husband calls me the queen of desserts because I love almost all of them!
Lemon bars sound delicious and I haven't had a good one in a long time! Sweets are always something nice to give to friends.
I love Steph's first post on this, and then especially the second, "Wait...please don't think I meant that in a bad way" post. Funny!
So, the carrot sticks I'm munching on just aren't cutting it anymore.
Wow- those photo cookies are way cool! What a great handing out at the airport gift for adoptive parents!!
OMGosh!! I need to eat those right now!
Lemon bars are in my top 5! Right after carrot cake and turtle cheesecake. I'm salivating just thinking of the tart, tangy flavor on a warm spring afternoon.
Oh. my. Levi and I totally have a weakness for lemon bars! Yummers.
I love anything lemon desserts too, my favorite, lemon tarts! These bars look SO yummy!
(meaning= how awesome!!!!!!! My favorite!!!!)
I am pretty sure that Baby Girl just leaped in my womb at the thought of lemon bars. All things citrus sounds great right now... and with the weather being 80 today, I might just need to run to the store and pick up some lemonade. Ahhhhh... refreshing!
Lemon squares is perfect for this time of year. Really, lemon is such a good spring/summer food. Just cheers you right up.
As much as I do love cupcakes I definitely love lemon bars too! And how great that they don't use preservatives!! Awesome!

I just made some lemon squares over the weekend, and I'm definitely ready for another batch :) Nothing says spring like lemon squares!
Mmm, I love lemon bars! I should make some. It's nice to hear that they don't have preservatives, too; it's like eating home-baked without having to bake!

I am always in the mood for lemony desserts in the spring...those look yummy!
Those lemon bars look delicious and are perfect for spring. I love supporting family-run businesses and what better way to come home after a day at work to a bunch of cookies.
Oh my goodness - I am having on of those days at work right now and instead of working I am taking a break to re-focus and I could use those cookies right now!
Those darn HP support people in india - I just wanted to cry this morning!
I have to say that I am not a chocolate fan (please don't hurl tomatoes at me) and I love non-chocolate based desserts. This makes me something of an expert on items like bars, lemon and otherwise. I would love to try some of these.
Ok, I guess I'm the only one who has never had a lemon bar before? They look delicious! =9
Lemon bars are so super yummy!! I agree with the previous poster that there is something about spring that makes me want fruity goodies. Yum!
What a happy thing to find on your doorstep! I wish the internet had been around when I was in college so that I could have guilted my mom into sending me things like that when I was feeling homesick. (Not that I needed assistance with my freshman 15.)
Must be something about spring coming that's making everyone thing of Lemon Bars. I just read this post last night http://thisweekfordinner.com/2010/03/31/lemon-bars-or-is-that-lemon-squares/, and filed the recipe away to make next week sometime. But who wouldn't prefer eating a dessert that someone else made?!
lemon bars are my absolute favorite!! thinking they probably won't fit into my diet right now, although I love that they are made with natural ingredients...no preservatives:)thanks for sharing!
Ooh, I haven't had lemon bars in ages. Yummy. Thanks for the chance to win and I hope Steph will enjoy hers :)
