Lemon Bars by claremanson Lemon Bars by claremanson
Today i wanted to try a new recipe with one of my favourite dessert flavours, lemon as i really needed a break from chocolate before i start dreaming it!

I must have done something wrong though as they didn't fully set but they were delicious.

Recipe from BBC Good Food [link]

I don't know nearly enough people who make lemon bars xD Lemon pastries are just the most amazing fruit pastries ever. Also make great pies. :heart:

they were very tricky to make, i never did make them again, they not setting fully kind of put me off making them again for now.

Try adding pistachios into the recipe! I had lemon pistachio bars and it is one of my favorites ever since.

I try and bake when they are occupied, Sarah will happily play Toy Story 3 game on the PS3 for hours (she is addicted and scarily awesome at it now) Sasha has worked out how to open the baby gate to the kitchen so comes in and torments me by trying to trip me over with her toys, going in the cupboards and playing with the water in the sink! Though if it is a new recipe i want to try i wait until they are both or bed or out so i can concentrate else u get too stressed out lol
