Testing . . . Lemon Bars

June 12, 2014 by alex


I used the same lemon bar recipe for these lemon bar but I substituted 1/2 cup granulated sugar for 1/2 dark brown sugar. It gave the bars a molasses-like flavor. Hope you enjoy!

For the second batch of lemon bars, I put 1/2 a lemon’s zest, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. In the filling, I added 1/2 a extra lemon’s zest, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. I also beat the four eggs until they were light and pale yellow. This increases the volume of the filling. The filling ended up being very light and meringue-like. For the glaze, I added some lemon zest. I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Alex, Thank you for making my day with these beautiful looking lemon bars. I love the hint of orange. (and I have eaten 3 so far…) (:

    This is my favorite thing you’ve made. They’re perfect. College is dumb, drop out and sell these and become a millionaire.

    The second batch almost actually made me cry. Infinitely better than the first, which was already the best food I’ve ever put in my mouth.

    Amazing. Simply amazing.
