That's right. Pucker up, for this fabulous recipe for Tangy Lemon Bars. My friend Thea gave me this recipe. I have made lemon bars a time or two before. I love anything with lemon in it. But lemon bars never turned out the way I wanted them to. Not this time. The whole thing is whipped up in the Cuisinart. Starting with the dough.
Luscious Lemon Bars
1 Cup Cold Butter
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Cups Flour
Cut butter into cubes and toss into Cuisinart. Add rest of dry ingredients, and pulse until mixture comes together and resembles peas.
Press into 9 x 13 baking pan and bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. I took mine out at 18 minutes.
While cooling make the filling:
In same bowl:
2 Cups Sugar
4 Tablespoons Flour
5-6 Tablespoons Lemon Juice ( I used 6 GENEROUS T of juice )
Zest of 2 lemons ( I zested 4 lemons, because I am a rebel like that )
Pinch of salt
Mix together, then pour over your cooled crust. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Top will form a crust.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over top. Cut when cool. Pucker up and ENJOY!!!
This next photo, I was trying to take it of all of the machine settings so that if I ever allow a long time to go by between switching the settings for free motion quilting, I would remember where I put all of my dials. But when I viewed it on my computer, I saw that the dials were all fuzzy, but the photo of Geeps and I that is sitting on the table was in perfect focus. I thought that was kind of neat.
It's Friday people! Go out and make it a great day! And have a wonderful weekend!!!
So, what have YOU been up to?????
PS As I was making the pot pie, and pausing to take pictures, I got to thinking how much easier it would be be to do some videos of some of the cooking techniques that I talk about here on my blog. Maybe that would be a great way to go for my some Cooking 101 online? I will need to have Gennifer help to show me how to set that up. I have a tripod, so it shouldn't be too difficult. What do you think? Cooking Class via video?
