Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are so light and fresh!  You don't get them often, but they are so good.  With that little bit of powdered sugar on top, it just makes it all the better.  The best thing about lemon bars is that you can cut them to any size you want.... big, small, or somewhere in between!

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
Grated peel of 1 lemon
Powdered sugar

Combine all crust ingredients in a small bowl.  Beat 2-3 minutes until mixture is crumbly.  Press onto the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Combine all filling ingredients except powdered sugar in a small bowl. Beat until well mixed.
Pour filling over hot crust. Continue baking 15-18 minutes or until filling is set. 
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cool completely. Cut into bars. Sprinkle with powdered sugar again.  
Makes about 16 bars.
