I recently came a across a lemon bar recipe I had jotted down on a piece of paper and stuffed in a drawer. I love desserts with lemon so figured it was time to give it a try.
The crust is like shortbread and goes great with my ginger & mandarin organic tea.
Combine 1 cup flour, 1 stick of butter and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. Press into a 8 or 9 inch pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Combine 2 beaten eggs, 1 cup of sugar (I used 1/2 a cup), juice of one lemon and 1 tsp of grated lemon rind. Mix well and pour over partially baked crust then return to oven for 25 minutes. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
Please take a moment to say a prayer for all those affected by the tornado that ripped through Joplin, MO. More storms are predicted for that area today.
Kimmie hosts Tea on Tuesday so hop on over to Art in Red Wagons for more tea. Friendship blessings, Tammy
