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.
