My daughter, Mary just left this morning after spending the night with us. She was going to Blue Earth to do a job follow for the morning she will soon finish school for coding. When I was 50, I went to college after being a LPN for 32 years I decided to return to school to become a RN. I barely finished paying off my school loan before I retired! I think I went back to school to reach my full potential and to be an example to my children. I guess it worked. My son John went to school at age 38 to become a RN and Mary is in college in her 40’s to further her career. I just tried a new recipe for Lemon bars. It was tasty, easy and one I will make again. I hope that you will like it too.
Lemon Curd Bars
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour
1 jar lemon curd ( 10 oz. size)
2/3 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds or pecans.
Beat butter 30 seconds, add sugar beat until combined. Add flour and baking powder, beat until just combined and resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 2/3 cup crumb mixture. Press remaining crumbs in the bottom of a greased 13x9 inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Mix reserved crumbs with the coconut and nuts. Spread curd over warm crust to within 1/2 inch of edges. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over curd layer. Bake 18-20 minutes until topping golden. Cool. Cut into bars store in the refrigerator.
Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
