Cooking Thursday7:37 AM
Well good morning, here's hoping everyone is having a good week so far.
I have to apologize, because I totally forgot, or rather didn't realize that today was Thursday. So here I was about to start on a different post when I saw the day and went *GASP*. Ha!
Better late than never right?
So for today's recipe, I'm sharing my husband's favorite thing on earth. Lemon Bars.
I mentioned them on the Happy Homemaker Monday and quite a few of you wanted the recipe, so here you go ;)
Lemon and Orange BarsFor the base:
250gr of flour (2 cups)
85gr of powdered sugar (3/4 cup)
175gr of butter, cut into small pieces (3/4 cup)
For the topping:
2 lemons and 1 large orange
4 large eggs
400gr sugar (I think that’s too much, I only used 1 cup)
50gr flour (1/2 cup)
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a 9 x 12 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In your standing mixer, beat together the flour, sugar and butter until it forms crumbs. (I beat mine a little longer because I got distracted with a kid, so mine came out more bound like a dough, still good though)
Press into the prepared pan. Pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes until pale golden.
Finely grate the zest from the lemons and the orange.
Then squeeze out all the juice into a cup. You will need the juice from both lemons and the orange.
Whisk together the eggs and sugar, then add the zest and the juice, add the flour and mix well.
When cool, lift the parchment paper out, and then dust heavily with powdered sugar.
