At this point, I've written about 250 recipes for my website. I've completely lost count, but I DO know I'm running out of interesting ways to say, "This recipe is awesome!"
Ok, let's try it ...
This recipe is awesome!
Did it work? Are you convinced? Are you ready to give it a shot?
Ok, let's back up. In all sincerity, this recipe truly was fantastic! The texture was AMAZING. When I pulled it out of the oven, it looked a bit like a hard rock. I was less than thrilled with the appearance, fresh from the hot box. I let it chill, thinking it would be a bit of a disaster. When I flipped over the pan, they just popped right out, as if they were eager to see the world. In my hand was a tough and perfect square, golden on the bottom and yellow on top. Things were looking up! I cut into it and the slice was magnificent! It didn't shatter, like so many rock hard baked goods can. Nope! The knife glided right through, as if the lemon bars were guiding it; wanting to be split into perfect little portions.
I bit into one.
O .... M .... G ... (exclamation points!!!!!!!!)
The crispity texture was the best I've experienced in a baked good, since my parmesan hazelnut crackers
. It was as if pleasant, crunchy and crispy all got together and formed a whole new word, which I can't quite pronounce ...
... And it was, too! It really reminded me of a crisp butter cookie, but with a strong lemon essence. Finally, I powdered them up with some powdered Swerve
, where they gained that last little bit of a cool breeze.
This is on my top 10. It just has to be.
