. . . Cookie Time Tuesday--Lemon Crumb Bars . . .

I L♥VE a good Lemon Bar and my family has an outstanding recipe for them, but when I was flipping through a cookbook and saw this unique twist on Lemon Bars I had to give it a try.  The recipe for Lemon Crumb Bars calls for Saltine Crackers--what?  I know it sounds weird but it totally works.  I don't even have a pretty picture of the finished product because these bars disappeared before my eyes the minute I set them out.  They are so good!
