Lemon Bars #SurpriseRecipeSwap
Have you ever had a day or a week or maybe even a month where it seemed everything possible was going to go wrong?? That’s been our world for about the past two weeks or so. It started off with Princess P & I both being sick for over a week. Then during that same week, I found out my bank checkcard had been hijacked & someone had tried to buy a Zappos giftcard of all things. Then it all came to a head this past weekend when we found out the window in our daughter’s room has been leaking & caused water damage to her chest of drawers & really bad mildew and wood stains on the carpet!! So our weekend was spent buying new bedroom furniture & yesterday was spent having the carpet replaced & construction guys out trying to determine what needs to be done to the window!!
So due to our weeks of when it rains, it pours, I am a day late getting this post up!! My partner this month for the Surprise Recipe Swap was Trisha from My Hobbie Lobbie! Not only does she cook & bake but she also creates some amazing party supplies!! Trisha has an extensive selection of delicious recipes to pick from and when I saw the Lemon Bars she had made, I knew that was the recipe I wanted to try! I’ve been dying to make lemon bars since the weather got warmer so it was the perfect choice!!
For The Crust
- 1/2 cup butter, softened (not melted)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
For The Lemon Filling
- 3 eggs
- 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 & 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest
- juice from 2 medium lemons ~ about 1/4 – 1/2 cup
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- powdered sugar to dust over the bars
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier, and I’m so happy that you enjoyed these lemon bars. We love them too 🙂
Hope you don’t have too much trouble or work to get done with the window!
Sounds like you need some good wishes and positive things to happen…These lemon bars would make all the bad go away.. They look delicious. I am not sure if you knew that I had your blog for my SRS and made your basalmic bruschetta chicken that was excellent…
