As I mentioned here, I love to bake.
There is something extremely satisfying in thinking about what I must eat and then make it. The end results are usually fabulously delicious and I can share my goodies with others.
Now, since I don't live near any of you which means that I can't walk or drive over these yummy creations, I will share my recipes with you.
I know, I know, I am much too kind, but I want to share this with you, my bloggy friends. I want you to have something that you can sit down with at the end of a hard day or maybe even have in the morning to start a day off wonderfully.
Are you ready? Because our first recipe is....
Lemon Bars (which I swear are to-die-for)
What you'll need for the crust:
1 1/2 c flour
2/3 c powdered sugar
3/4 c softened butter
What you'll need for the filling:
1 1/2 c white sugar
3 Tbsp flour
1/4 c lemon juice
Heat your oven to 375, grease a 9x13 pan (I use a glass pan); set aside
Mix your crust ingredients together (flour, powdered sugar and softened butter). Mix until you can form in a ball. Take the dough ball and begin spreading it in your greased pan.
Bake for ~20 minutes (give or take, keep an eye on it) until it is slightly golden.
While your crust is baking whisk together your filling ingredients (eggs, white sugar, flour and lemon juice). Whisk until it is frothy. Set aside.
When crust is done, take out of oven and pour filling on top. Place back in oven and bake another ~20 minutes--until light golden. (Again, keep an eye on it. I cooked mine for around 18 minutes and it turned out perfectly).
Once you have taken it out of the oven, dust the top with powdered sugar.
And there you have it...delish! They are good warm, but even better the next day.
