BAKING of the week?....from last week again!!

I HAVE EPICALLY FAILED AT THISE FOR SO LONG!!! Apologies all around!!

LUSCIOUS LEMON BARS
"Lemon has such perfect- light and sweet, fresh and clean."

1/2 Cup softened butter
2 TBSP grated zest
1 cup plus 3 TBSP flour, divided
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 eggs
3 TBSP lemon juice
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 Cups Sugar

COMBINE butter, 1 tbsp lemon zest, 1 Cup flour, and powdered sugar in a food processor ( blenders fail big time!) (Or you can have you strong burly man do it by hand! ;) )
Process until mixture becomes a crumb texture.

PRESS crumbs into a greased 8X8 baking dish. Spread evenly to form a crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 mins.

MEANWHILE beat eggs, lemon juice, remaining flour, baking powder, and lemon zest and sugar. Pour over baked crust and bake for 25 more mins. Remove and let cool, then dust with powdered sugar and cut into squares.

These are SO yummy!! Awesomeboy even hid them in his room so his roommates wouldn't snarf them all down!!!...Someone missed the sharing lesson when he was 4!!! :)

And sorry...no picks...they looked amazing...and I took pics...then I deleted them because in my brain I had already blogged this...yet that was dream!! woooops!! I guess you just have to make them to see what they look like!! =)

In other lemony goodness news ...on my lemonade vitamin water today I had a good laugh at the message it had on it! And just thought I'd share it because I think EVERYONE can relate to it!!

"C'mon, is that a purse...or a suitcase? let's see what you're squeezing in there. looky here, a gift card(with 89 cents left), three different hand creams (melon, cucumber, cucumber-melon), lip blam, lip stick, and lip gloss - oh what's this? ahhh the ol' giant wad of receipts (plan to return that shirt you're wearing?) well, your bags inspired us. we squeezed as much good stuff as we could into this bottle....feel free to squeeze a couple of bottles into your purse... or "man-bag" (we're not judging)."


Well happy Monday everyone!! hope this brought some sunshine into your day!!...blasted Mondays..

XOXO
