I was out Paula-Deen-ed: Lemon Bars from Scratch

Lemon bars! Here we go!

Lemon bars! Here we go!

It’s spring and sunny outside and BBQ season is starting up. With a plethora of unused lemons in the backyard, I had to try my hand at a lemon bar recipe that’s been sitting on one of my Lemon Pinterest boards – yes an entire board dedicated to lemon stuff.

Lemons right off the tree :)

I love to bake and the recipe looked easy enough and it being a good ole southern recipe, it has to be good. So I either don’t have the Paula Deen touch or the recipe could call for a little bit more flour. Half of it came out good, but I had to pop it back in the oven because the other half was still to moist to set. Even after an extra fifteen minutes, which browned the outside more than I liked, part of it was soft. I cooled it and added the powered sugar. And despite the messiness, it’s sweet and tasty.

Here’s where I found the recipe.

Baking away. There's enough butter in there to cause a heart attack.

  4. They look delicious. I made strawberry and blueberry banana muffins tonight and had the same not enough flour issue. You’ve inspired me to try these, I love lemon bars, but I’ve never actually made them.
