Tutorial Tuesday: Honey Lemon Bars 5/18/2010

I used this recipe to make this supposedly healthier version of lemon bars. Didn't really turn out the way I thought it would, and I don't think I'll be making this again, but hey, a tutorial it is and so you get photos : ).

Honey Lemon Bars
Cream butter and honey.

Add egg, lemon zest, lemon juice, and ricotta cheese. Mix well.
I used yogurt that had been hanging for 2 hours in place of ricotta cheese as an experiment. The whole thing's gross looking, I know! And I accidentally added the baking powder in this step when it wasn't supposed to be added until the last step. Oops :)

Add flour and baking powder. Mix lightly, until just combined.

Pour into greased baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees F.  Tada! Enjoy your slightly lemon flavored non cake but not bread either thingy. 


  1. I just noticed you had your own schnazzy new blog with all you're cool stuff on it. :-) I guess I get it all on the 'regular' blog too though, huh? This is a great idea!! Now I can actually link to your articles that I blab about on my blog!

  2. Hi, Rachel! Yup, it's another outlet for me. Detailed family related stuff stays on the private blog, but I love having this for all the spa and pondering posts. Glad you found me! :)
