with all the sweetness going on in our kitchen (yes, it is entirely possible to be sick and yet still pig out on chocolate chip cookies) i was eyeing the fresh meyer lemons in our pantry with a newfound appreciation. i have been craving the lemon curd cake in martha’s book but i don’t have any cake pans yet. plus, since it was late in the afternoon, i was looking for something quick and easy to whip up.
but because blogging gives you the most opportune chance that somewhere out there someone else is thinking *the exact same thing* i am lucky enough to have found that, indeed, deb from smitten kitchen just recently made lemon bars.
using her adapted contessa recipe and tweaking it for more of the 1:1 ratio of crust to filling, it was a perfectly tart way to end a weekend of sugar overload!
note: these are not for the faint of heart!
