I hosted my bee group today and we had fun stitching and visiting as we always do. We also always have lunch together. I served a super easy Hawaiian Chicken with roasted asparagus and fresh fruit. But the best part of the meal was dessert. I made my mom's recipe for Lemon Squares and they were a huge hit. The kids were more than happy to finish off the leftovers.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, soft
1/4 confectioner sugar
Mix and press into a buttered 9 x 9 pan.
Bake 20 minutes.
While the crust is baking mix...
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
Pour over hot baked crust.
Bake 25 minutes.
Serve with a dusting of confectioner sugar.
These can be made the night before if needed.
And in the quilt room I've been working on a commission quilt. I am enjoying the strip piecing and the bright colors. I'll share more photos of this one soon, so stay tuned.
Have a wonderful weekend!
