Dear Husband wanted some treats to take to work. You know what that means, right? Yes, BAKING!!! Arggghhhh (creepy horror movie music playing in the background). I could not fall back on the seven-layer magic bars, either this time...because I had no graham cracker crumbs, or graham crackers to turn into crumbs. Oh crumbs.....but, wait a moment, I had lemons! Lots of lemons, that I used for my cobalt-blue-and-lemon-yellow themed kitchen in my most recent video. Go here to view that particular video, if you dare.
Anyhoo, lemon bars are what the big treat was going to be. I found what looked like an easy recipe for it..and began. First, one must make the shortbread crust that is underneath the lemony filling. Get your ingredients organized, as per usual....
I began by creaming butter and sugar until light and fluffy...remember, the butter is now at room temperature. I was rather surprised to see that confectionery sugar was called for...but I dutifully followed the recipe.
How did they come out? Well, have a look....
What is your favorite bar-type dessert? Is it easy to make?
Eat well, my friends....and stay tuned for the re-creation of the infamous Cheesy Mac and Rib! Love and kindness to all,
