lemon bars redux


I don’t know what it is with me, but I never seem to bake with fruit unless it’s specifically requested by someone else.  Case in point:  I’ve made these lemon bars three times, all for birthdays, and honestly, you’d think I’d wise up and do this sort of thing more often.  I mean, if nothing else, I’ve found that the addition of fruit often makes people more inclined to eat whatever sugar-laden concoction I’ve brought in, even the health nuts I work with.  Since I’ve posted this recipe before, I’ll be brief and let you enjoy the food porn…and your weekend.

cream together butter and sugar for the dough (the recipe calls for white; I used brown)

pat the dough into the pan

bake until golden (and ignore my spatula marks)

pour in some lemon, sugar, butter, eggs

careful not to spill!

they don't look like much from up top...

...but powdered sugar cures all ills.
