Uh Hello?? Do y’all not realize what is happening on this earth right now? We are making lemon bars!! Lemon bars have been one of my favorite desserts since I was 9!! Its so fresh tasting! There is that fresh, sour curd and that shortbread crust!! I have never like shortbread. Its honest. I think they are dry and just taste like flour. But it gives a great texture and flavor to these. It takes away some of the sourness!! Like I have said time and time before, my dad was never a big chocolate fan. But I loved making these!! With a little powdered sugar on top!
You know when you bite into something and it just taste fake and processed.? I hate that, well this is the exact opposite. You bight into it and its just so fresh and delicious!! Well, you all now how a lemon bar taste!!! yummy!!
This is the perfect thing when your sad!! Its easy and doesn’t take a while so you can just be in a horible mood and make it when ever you want. Its awesome!! I have been getting no sleep lately!! Seriously I don’t sleep at night! So I have been waking up in a bad grumpy mood. I always have lemons in my house so I just make these and put my self in a good mood. I try to save some for my family but it never works! I eat them, and just go back to bed. Its nice, I love eating and doing nothing else but sleeping and relaxing the whole day. I’m doing a ton of that now trying to relax before school starts up again. In Howard county, it starts Auguest 26.
I have always like lemon, its so sour and fresh. Lemon cake,cookies,cupcakes, frosting, sour candy, but nothing is more classic then a lemon bar. Except Maybe Lemonade. But you get the point!
I can’t make a diagram but it goes shortbread, lemon, powdered sugar. What can be better??? Lie I can;t think of it, do you know? I was gonna post these a while ago but I forgot to get pictures. So I waited till next time to take the pictures, I made them and when I went upstairs to get my camera, my family went alien lie and they were gone when I cam back. I forgot about them after that till now. So there is my life!
