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!
