Because every time I see the word “lemon” I feel the need to put “frisky” in front of it.
Anyway. If you didn’t know, I’m a huge fan of lemons.
Both the fruit and the “life hands you lemons” lemons.
Lemon bars have always been a favorite dessert of mine– the dessert most picked out of the pastry case.
Even over Chocolate Chip Cookies. *gasp*
(but we all know that homemade chocolate chip cookies taste millions of times better than store-bought cookies…so that shouldn’t really surprise you that much.)
The reason I usually bought lemon bars is because I always found them too time consuming to make myself. There was all of that squeezing and zesting and cooking-over-low-heat-ing and cooling. Too many steps for me who just likes to put all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir.
BUT then I found this recipe by Danielle at Against All Grain.
Minimal steps. Not that much waiting.
So I decided to try it.
I’m so glad that I did!
AND you should probably buy Danielle’s book for more amazing treats!
