That's what I need.
I love Lemon Bars. Almost as much as I love Creme Brulee. But I really love Lemon Bars.
I've only made them a few times. Each time I labored over making my own lemon curd, carefully separating eggs and cooking it to the right consistency on the stove top. It was a lot of work.
Last Thursday, I had a hankerin' for some Lemon Bars (you must always capitalize this to show reverence to the specialness that is Lemon Bars), but really I did not have the time or patience to make Lemon Bars.
My friend, Pam, (who should have a blog because she would share such amazing things: food, crafts, photography, etc, but doesn't...) told me I should make her recipe. (Since it is after midnight I will ask her tomorrow if I can share her recipe with you.)
And then she shared a little piece of heaven with me...Lemon Bars.
They were so easy. MY work was done in less than 20 min. Then I just sat back and waited for them to cook and cool. That was the most agonizing part. And they were delicious!
Our Bible study group was small, so my family was thrilled when I brought the "extras" home. They were so good that they were gone by the time I went to bed on Thursday night.
I decided they were so good I should make them for Easter Sunday. So I mixed and baked and cooled and cut, and then declared, "They are good!"
And then this evening we held "Party @ the Pastor's". This is an opportunity for people from church to come to our house and get to know Mike and I little better in a setting outside of Sunday morning church. We open our door and serve dessert.
That's right...Lemon Bars.
Folks that is three pans of Lemon Bars in eight days. Three 9x13 pans of Lemon Bars.
And let me be completely honest when I say I'm pretty sure that I have eaten at least 1/3 of the pan each time.
It is now time to let the Lemon Bars rest for a while.
