Lemon Poppyseed Bars

Sometimes you just have to have a refreshing dessert.  As part of my job as an R&D Consulting Chef for ACH Food Companies, I get to “inventorize” (new word) recipes made with our products.  This truly is one of my favorites, next month’s is another.  I hope you enjoy these bars as much as we all did testing and tasting them.  Quick, easy and just delicious!  This would make a very refreshing dessert for your Easter Sunday Dinner.

2/3 cups Greek yogurt
1 stick butter, softened
4 large eggs
1 ½ cup sugar
¼ cup lemon juice, or juice from 2 fresh lemons

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium mixing bowl, blend together softened butter and yogurt. Add lemon poppyseed mix and continuing mixing until combined.
