Yum. If you can believe it, this No Bake Freezer Lemon Squares recipe fell out of one of the vintage books I listed at the Cookbook Villlage store. The book is from 1942 but this recipe definitely isn't as it looks like a modern-day coupon you find in the food aisle. It's on one of those cutout coupons. I just couldn't resist posting it as it looks absolutely amazing and seems like karma that I should share it on my blog. Wonder if you can try out some Orange food coloring and make these for Halloween?
