Tuesdays At The Table - Strawberry Lemon Bars

First, a huge THANK YOU to all of you that have sent Meadow your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!  Your comments and good thoughts have meant so much to me. I'll do an update post on her tomorrow (hopefully).

I'm all about the bar cookie lately.  Most of the bar cookie recipes mix up quickly, clean up fairly easily and are just plain yummy. :-)


Strawberry Lemon Bars

2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon zest
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 egg
1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries

In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer cream sugar and butter together.  Mix in egg, lemon juice and zest.  Slowly add in flour mixture. Fold in diced strawberries by hand.

Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with foil.  Press dough into the bottom of the pan.  Bake at 350 for about 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

Let the bars cool before cutting and glazing.

1 cup of confectioners sugar and the juice of half a lemon. Whisk together and pour over cut and cooled bars.

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  4. So sorry to hear about Meadow! My little Tuck is also recovering. Turns out he is a little garbage disposal. The stuff I thought he was just tearing apart (and I would take away the pieces/stuffing/etc) he was actually ingesting parts of it and the stuff got lodged in his intestine. He had emergency surgery 12 days ago. He is doing great and I have thrown away everything with stuffing and watch him like a hawk!!! It was so scary!

  5. Poor Meadow!
    Thank you for hosting. Your strawberry lemonade bars are so summery!

  6. I'm sorry about your dog. It's hard when they are sick because they are so much like family. Ours had a similar problem a year ago but since he is a different breed they had a hard time diagnosing him. He didn't look good and we thought we'd lose him. I'm embarrassed to say I cried in front of the vet. He's ok now though. Once we got him to lie still so he could heal. Ornery as ever.

  7. Thanks for hosting! I'm a fan of lemon bars, and I'm sure adding strawberries makes them tastier eats. Hope Meadow feels better soon!
