I love lemon desserts. And lime desserts. But I never really make anything. But when Alex had a gathering at work and needed to bring the sweets, he asked me to bake lemon bars! I was excited to finally have a reason to make them (but do you really need a reason?!) and found this great recipe for creamy lemon crumb squares from who else, but The Pioneer Woman.
They were super easy to make and only needed a handful of ingredients, most of which we already had at home. However, when I took them out of the own, they were still a bit wiggly and I fought with myself about putting them in for longer. But Alex, as always, said to trust the recipe so I did and popped them in the fridge to chill. After a couple of hours in the cold, they had solidified some and the custard-like filling was perfect!
The next day, Alex took them to work and he said everyone fell in love! So happy I didn’t cook them any longer or they may have burned. And sorry, no picture this time; they didn’t last long!
