I took a bit of a break from blogging over the Holidays. We had a great time with the kids and grands! I forgot to post the results of my Sew Mama Sew giveaway! Oops! The prize went to Linda, she had offered up her favorite Holiday treat recipe:
Hi, Thanks for the Recipe-I'm saving it!
My favorite is: STRAWBERRY LEMON BARS
Crust: Makes 12 bars
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1/2 t salt
12 T butter, cut into 1/4″ cubes (1 1/2 sticks)
1 c sliced strawberries+1/4 c sugar
1 c sugar
3 T flour
2/3 c lemon juice
Powdered sugar for dusting
Line a 9″ x 13″ pan with parchment paper up 1″ on all sides.
Mix the flour, powdered sugar, salt and vanilla in butter.
Press dough evenly over the parchment lined sheet using your fingers to press the dough into a uniform sheet of dough that goes about 1/2″ up all the sides.Put it in the freezer for 30".
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and 1/4 cup of sugar
To prepare the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour. Add the lemon juice and whisk to combine.
Remove crust from the freezer+ put in oven+bake for around 25 min. When the crust is done, immediately scatter the strawberries around the crust, pour any accumulated juices into the lemon mixture and whisk to combine. Pour the lemon mixture over the strawberries.
Lower oven to 325.
Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the center of the lemon bars doesn’t jiggle.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
Slice, then dust with powdered sugar and serve.
Over the New Year weekend, Sweetie and I went down to Kanab. We took a drive down to Page, AZ and on the way back we stopped at the Glen Canyon Dam. Wow! What a sight! They had an unusual snowstorm a few days before.
