Lemon Square Bars
July 30, 2007

These were really good...exactly like the ones at the coffee shop near my house. They charge $2.50 a square...wonder where they got the recipe??? Update: I tried baking the crust at 315 as someone else suggested. I did not work out for me at all....The crust was mushy and greasy from the butter. Also, I substituted lime juice for lemon juice, just to see what the filling would taste like. The difference was negligible, and the lime juice made the filling sorta brown and still tasted more like lemons than limes. I'm going to stick with baking the crust @ 350 for 17 mins, and using fresh lemon juice. Oh, and I also line the pan with parchment paper....very important step, as they come out of the pan way more easily. UPDATE # 2. FINALLY figured out how to get great crust. I used my Cuisinart to blend the ingredients and added the butter partially frozen. Pulsed it until it was lightly crumbled. Perfect!
