Cookbook Project

My friend at work, Christy, is doing a special cookbook project – cooking her family recipes and putting it in a book to welcome a new addition to her clan.

She asked me if I would cook a few of the recipes and take pictures of them, knowing how much I love doing that. How could I say no?

Lemon Bars

These are classified in the things-Ilana-never-ate-before drawer. Even though I have spent most of my life in America, I am not, for all intents and purposes American, especially not in what I ate as a kid. My parents never made lemon bars; they never heard of them. But Christy is a true Midwestern girl, and I was psyched to try this old family recipe.

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp lemon rind
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup regular sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup powdered sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine slightly softened butter, 1 cup flour & 1/4 cup powdered sugar in a food processor or mixer. Bake the crust for 15 minutes in an 8x8 buttered baking pan.

Combine 2 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon rind, eggs, sugar, 2 tablespoons flour & baking powder. Pour over baked crust. Bake 25 minutes. Cool.

For the glaze, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice until slightly thick. Pour over the lemon bars and let cool.

These were fantastic! Very sweet, but fantastic. A coworker even said they were the best lemon bars he has ever eaten... Yippee!
