I have never made lemon bars before.
Had been planning on making them….sometime, really I was..
Today was the day,
but I didn’t make them from scratch as originally planned.
My mom bought a box of the Barefoot Contessa’s mix and didn’t use it and decided to give it to me.
Well it’s been sitting on the counter for a couple of days and today my daughter wanted to make them,
so we gave them a try.
I’m glad we did.
Who would have thought they’d taste so fresh and lemony.
We added the juice of two and a half really ripe lemons, and it sure must have helped.
Now I’ll have to try it, all on my own next time.
The shortbread bottom was delicious.
I LOVE SHORTBREAD!
I’ll either come up with my own recipe or hope that someone will share a nice one with me.
If you have a great recipe, I hope you’ll share.
This was a nice mix to try out.
My mom bought the mix at Sur La Table.
