Two Lemons of Pure Happiness

I know it is the day before Christmas,
and I still have some cooking to do for our Christmas eve feast.... you can see more of that here.

last night I discovered the best ever lemon bar recipe ...

I had the kitchen to myself last night.... a rare pleasure!!
So, I took time to make up a few last minute treats.
if you knew me well,
then you'd know that I love a good lemon recipe!!

...and this recipes for lemon bars was just too easy.

Trust me, these are absolutely delicious.
I did not have an organic lemon but I scrubbed away at the one we did have....
because the whole lemon is used which really gives it a wonderful lemony flavour.

Just click on the image and you will go to the recipe...
I was going to copy it into my post but you may enjoy reading the
original post by David Lebovitz.

I am signing off until after Christmas.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and best wishes for the new year!!

  1. Merry Christmas!

    Thanks for the recipe. We have lemons ready to picked off the tree. Maybe I can make them at my sister's since my kitchen is in the works. I will have to adjust the recipe a little because my daughter can't have gluten, but that's pretty easy for me now.

    I think your kitchen should be in a magazine. I love it.

    1. are so sweet. It took a lot of magazine perusing to come up with the design and keep it within our budget....which was limited with a capital L.
      Tell me how the recipe turns out in a gluten-free version. I am curious.

    2. Speaking of gluten-free, I made GF peanut butter, chocolate chip, pecan cookies for my daughter several days ago. Alas (one of my favorite words, Alas!) the cookies burned on the bottom, maybe I didn't adjust for the high altitude here?, but I had left-over batter so made bars, similar to brownies, and they were way past delicious so the day was saved.

  2. Thanks for the link. Trip loves lemon bars!


  3. Thanks for the link! Trip loves lemon bars...they're his very favorite!
