I realized today, that I had forgotten to post 52 Friday last week ... so today, I'll post 2!
He was free to enjoy
the breathless glee
that overwhelmed him:
the speed, the clear cool air,
the total silence, the feeling of balance
Balance your thoughts with action.
If you spend too much time
thinking about a thing,
you'll never get it done.
I was looking at a bowl of lemons on my counter and decided I should make Luscious Lemons Squares :-)
They're the perfect BALANCE of Tart & Sweet.
Here's the recipe...
LUSCIOUS LEMON SQUARES
1/2 cup softened butter
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup plus 2 1/2 tsps all purpose flour
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar ( I use a little less)
6 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8" baking pan.
FOR THE CRUST: Using an electric mixer, cream butter, confectioners sugar and 1 cup of flour on medium speed and beat until well blended. Press dough firmly over bottom of pan and bake in oven for 15 minutes until lightly golden. Set pan aside to cool.
FOR THE TOPPING: While crust is cooling, prepare the lemon topping by combining eggs, granulated sugar, remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons of flour, lemon juice and zest in medium bowl. Beat with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Pour over cooled crust and return to oven for 20 minutes more, until set.
Allow to cool thoroughly in the pan before cutting into squares.
Dust with confectioners sugar.
