There is something so happy about lemonade. I think back to my own lemonade stands when I was a kid and then the ones my children constructed just outside the house we still live in. It warms my heart. Every time I see a lemonade stand, I stop. Last summer, I saw one on the corner a few miles away. Those kids had a great spot just outside their subdivision. I pulled in and sent my three kids to buy from them, telling my children to always stop at kid run lemonade stands and to always have some cash on hand. Hey, it was a good lesson both ways. To my surprise, the cups of lemonade were huge and delicious. If their parents were like me, they probably mixed up some Country Time to make that stand a hit. It was great and smiles were ear to ear!
Speaking of lemonade and things of lemon, let’s talk lemon squares! Isn’t this a thing of beauty? It was super easy to make! I’ll show you.

I made Country Time Lemon Squares using their new Lemonade Starter. I used the Classic Lemonade Starter in this recipe but they also have Berry Lemonade and Half Lemonade & Half Tea starters too. First, you make the crust with just three ingredients. YAY to that! It’s just butter, flour and powdered sugar. You mix it until it’s a dough consistency and then you smash it into an 8×8 baking dish. Easy as … lemon squares. Next you bake it for 20 minutes. While it bakes you prepare the filling and pour it over the hot crust when it’s ready. In place of the traditional lemon juice, I used Country Time Lemonade Starter. Bake it for 25 more minutes. Remove it from the oven, sprinkle some powdered sugar and you’ve got an awesome dessert!

I picked up the Country Time Lemonade Starters at my local Walmart. Plus, I finally remembered to buy some more hand towels while I was there. No reason to wipe hands on clothes any longer. LOL!
If this photo could talk it would say, “Hello, I’m delicious.”
I love the Country Time Berry Lemonade Starter! Which one do you think will be your favorite?
