lemon bars

This past week, I had a four day weekend! Lucky for me, Ari was home this week, so I was able to cook him dinner, go for an evening bike ride, stay up late and hang out with my man πŸ™‚

As I write this, I am once again ALONE while my hubby is away for business. Let me tell you business trips are the worst and especially rough after a long week with my hub.

I did want to stop in and share these amazing lemon bars that we baked this weekend! YUM. We made them Sunday, so I was left with all the leftovers…this is both good and bad for my tummy if ya know what I mean πŸ˜‰

I found the recipe on Pinterest which led me to an awesome baking blog! Check it out! Live Well Bake Often

Here is the recipe: (If you want more detailed instructions click the link above πŸ™‚ )

For the crust:
Combine 1 & ΒΎ cups flour + ΒΌ cup cornstarch + Β½ cup granulated sugar + ΒΌ teaspoon salt. Mix well and then add 1 cup unsalted butter. (I used my hands). Next place in a greased baking dish. Bake at 350 for 20ish minutes till edges turn golden brown.

For the lemon filling:
Combine 1 & Β½ cups granulated sugar + ΒΌ cup flour + 4 eggs + Β½ cup fresh lemon juice ( about 2 & Β½ large lemons). Pour over crust and bake at 350 for another 20ish minutes till the filling is set.
Our lemon bars did not turn out as pretty, but boy were they delicious! We will definitely be making these again!
Let me know if you make these or any of the other amazing goodies from Live well bake often!
