Lemon Squares

This was my Papa's favorite. Also my favorite after field hockey games. My friend's mom, Lisa, made them basically every game, and I must have had at least 4 squares after playing. Not the best for tummy aches, but certainly worth it. After I stopped playing, I was lucky enough to receive THE recipe. This is that recipe. Thank you Lisa Towers!
