Second on the Second - 1/2/17

I recently posted a lemon curd recipe.  Since I had all those lemons I needed to find another use for them.  Digging back through my old blog I came across this post.  Ta-da!  Here is my entry for the Second on the Second hosted by Elizabeth at the Altered Book Lover blog.  Thanks Elizabeth for keeping this going.

Lemon Bars (recipe)

What do you do when your lemon tree is producing lots of lemons?

Make lemon bars of course!

Our Meyer Lemon puts out so much fruit this time of year. What you see here is just the harvest from one day.

Here's a simple but delicious recipe for lemon bars. I think I've posted it before. It is a favorite and if you have a few lemons the rest of the ingredients are pantry staples. I usually cut the bars smaller, they are very rich. I guess my appetite must have kicked in when I was cutting these.

Lemon Bars

2 cups flour
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix & press in 9 x 13" pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350F.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
grated rind of one lemon (optional)
5 tablespoons flour
4 beaten eggs

Mix sugar, juice and flour, add eggs. Pour over crust and bake for 25 minutes at 350F. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when done.

Are you fond of lemon flavored desserts?

  4. YUM! I love lemon bars! Thanks so much for reposting this...I've already saved the recipe for later use. Can't wait!

  5. I would give anything to have some of those lemons. I visited a friend at Christmas one year in CA and came home loaded (I mean LOADED) with bags of lemons and avocados, both of which came from their trees. You have no idea how lucky you are to have lemon trees in both places, now.

    Thanks for reposting this, as well as the recipe for your second look this first month in 2017.

  6. Oh how delicious!!! I may just have to pick u some lemons 🍋 soon!

  7. I love lemon bars too and will have to try your recipe. I have a baby Meyer lemon tree. Looking forward to harvesting some fruit this year.

    Happy 2017 ~ FlowerLady

  8. How wonderful to have fresh lemons to use! I can imagine that I would love this but I don't know what it would do to my sugar levels! Happy New Year!
