Lemon Squares

I made a batch of lemon squares last night for my sister. Her workplace is having a post-Christmas potluck and her department had to bring desserts. We made the recipe from Clueless Baker which is easy and straightforward. It was only after I was done that I realized I forgot to add sugar to the base. You couldn't tell because the topping was sweet but I knew. Sheesh. Lemon bars are tricky becasue you can't overbake them nor do you want them runny. Achieving the perfect creamy lemon filling is really satisfying. The bars were very nice but I think the pan may have tilted or something because one side had a thicker filling than the other. Oh well, my sister and husband tested them last night and they got a thumbs up and with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, they were the perfect teatime treat.

Sepia, those bars were fantastic! Of all the items brought to that potluck table, the lemon bars was the only thing that got "yummy" comments over and over again. Lip service was paid to the others, but that was merely office politics! Bake more!
