I have had the pleasure of talking about food, recipes and nutritious food brands on TV many times during the last few months. I always come away from the TV station with strong admiration for the TV professionals I meet. Each host is so professional, welcoming and hard working. Oh, and did I mention fun! Here are a few snaps behind the scenes.
My mom just loves lemon. Chocolate not so much, but lemon is for sure high on her favourite list. I have made these squares a few times and I really like them and so does my mom. I particularly like the trick of using parchment paper in the pan, so when they cool, they can be lifted out and sliced nicely.
Here is the recipe I use. I really am not sure what cookbook it came from. I have been using this recipe for lemon squares since 1980. I hope you enjoy it and can share the love. Make a pan and give them away. Until next time, Judy Foodie.ca
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
3/4 cup butter
Using a food processor, mix ingredients together using pulse motion. You want coarse crumbs. Pat this onto the bottom of 13 x9-inch parchment paper lined baking pan. Bake at 350 degree F (180 degree C) for 15 minutes.
1 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup lemon juice
Using your electric mixer, beat eggs, about 3 minutes. Then beat in sugar, flour, baking powder and lemon juice. Pour this filling over the warm crust. Bake at 350 degree F for 15 minutes.
Let the squares cool completely before removing from the pan with parchment paper handles. Cut into bars and sift icing sugar over the top.
