The lemon bars of your dreams take just 15 minutes of prep: Stir together a mere three ingredients to create a sunny, puckery filling for a buttery shortbread crust. Source: Everyday Food, June 2008
okay, so i was inspired by miss martha stewart after watching one of her episodes of martha bakes, featuring citrus baked goodies. you see we are in the winter season and winter is known for its abundance of citrus fruits. we have a small lemon tree growing out back in our garden and it’s bursting with lots and lots of lemons! i’ve never seen this many lemons on our tree before, it’s incredible. i mean… i’m so excited because the endless possibility of anything lemon is amazing. of course, i just need to muster enough energy to bake or create delicious yummy looking and tasting things. we’ll see where that takes me. but for now, yes… i’ve made these perfect little lemony and
creamy squares. they are perfectly sweet and creamy with the condense milk, but yet at the same time the tartness in the lemons come through. it is just amazing. it’s like a nice burst of goodness in your mouth.
Lemon, show us your sunny pop of color. And while you’re at it, your intense burst of flavor. Where would we, and these better-for-you creamy squares, be without you?
