I love to bake but I do not do it much because hubby requested I do not. Why you ask? He says he loves my baking and ends up eating it all and he doesn’t want to be 300 lbs! hahaha! It is a great compliment but then I end up not baking as much as I normally do! Well since we both have office jobs it is a great way for me to get in my baking needs and then send it off to the office and let everyone else eat the goodness! Sharing IS Caring guys!
On Sunday I definitely got the itch to do some baking. My bestie, Ashley, came over and we decided to bake together! It was a ton of fun! We tried 3 new recipes and my old stand by sugar cookie recipe (it is the bomb!). Everything came out really delicious!
We were in the mood for some raspberry lemon bars which we found on Pinterest (umm…who else loves that site?). They sounded interesting especially because I have only ever made lemon bars never had thought to add another fruit to them! I love lemon bars! I would say they are definitely my favorite type of dessert…mainly because I pretty much love anything that is lemony! Yum yum!!
So we went on our merry way to head to the grocery store (The UnSafeway if you know 5 points!) got our goodies and got home to get rolling…haha get it? Rolling? Rolling Dough? No? …OK moving on…
It had been quite a long time since I have baked AND I got to do it with my bestfriend! Talk about soo much fun all while watching Playing House! Have you seen that TV Show? If not..you need to! It is hilarious and a great show to watch with your girlfriends, we were just missing a nice glass of wine to go with our day!
So, below is the recipe we used and I added some of my thoughts for the next time I will bake these bars! They came out perfectly baked. If you aren’t a really lemony person you will probably love them as is. I personally needed more lemon! I think the Raspberry amount overpowered the small amount of fresh lemon juice that is mentioned.
