Lemon and thyme work so beautifully together in the savory and surprisingly well in these sweet shortbread like bars. Herbaceous, zesty and a wonderfully perfect place to pair our favorite citrus and herb. Serve alone or cut into triangles and pair with our Meyer Lemon Mousse.

In a small bowl combine flour, thyme and salt. Set aside
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together 1 stick of butter and powdered sugar on high speed until light and fluffy, about 30 seconds.
Beat in the lemon juice and vanilla. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture.
Using damp fingers, press the dough into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes until golden. Cool for 30 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice and powdered sugar together until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the cooled crust. Allow the glaze to harden, at room temperature, for at least 1 hour.
Using a metal spatula, remove the crust from the pan. Cut into 1 1/2-inch square bars and arrange on a serving platter or store in an air tight plastic container at room temperature.
