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
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons lemon zest
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon juice
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.
