SOLSC Day 22
Today is food pantry day. That means getting up at 5:30 to get ready to be at the township building by 7:00 so that we can start filling bags. It also means that yesterday I made lemon bars for the workers. This is not something I have to do but something I enjoy doing because they like them.
You would think that after the many times I made these I wouldn’t need the recipe. Not the case. So, I got my recipe out to make sure I had all I needed.
Next, I had to prepare the pan. That involved lining the pan with foil and generously greasing the foil.
Flour, powdered sugar, and butter become the crust.
Crust in the pan, pan in the preheated oven and bake for 17 minutes. While the crust is baking it is time to get the filling ingredients together.
Mix them all together and pour the mixture over the hot crust.
Back into the oven. After 25 minutes you have a pan of lemon bars.
After they are cooled, it is time to cut them. Because the pan was foil lined and greased, it is easy to get them out of the pan and loosen the sides. Sometimes the top cracks and sometimes it doesn’t. This time it did, but that does not affect the taste. It is optional to dust them with powdered sugar. I don’t because I don’t think they need it.
I like to cut the bars into approximately 1″ pieces because they are easier to pick up and just pop into the mouth.
Off of the foil and onto a pan.
Pan is full and ready to go.
Hope the workers like them.
