Butterscotch Bars

It’s been an interesting year, hasn’t it? I’ve been on a bit of a bender lately, getting rid of (or at least, reducing) paperwork that’s been piling up and holds little interest for me. I have so much that I had to buy more paper (as in, paper file folders) to store all that paperwork in which seems redundant, but living in a place where paper…

It’s been an interesting year, hasn’t it? I’ve been on a bit of a bender lately, getting rid of (or at least, reducing) paperwork that’s been piling up and holds little interest for me. I have so much that I had to buy more paper (as in, paper file folders) to store all that paperwork in which seems redundant, but living in a place where paper still rules supreme, and digitizing takes as long as filing, I’m stuck filing and storing.

One change in the world of paper has been food blogs, which started out for many as being places where you could “store” and share your favorite recipes. But I’ve noticed over the last few years that food blogs have become a lot slicker, more polished, and often “aspirational.” While I’m jealous of those who have the talent, and patience, for writing for search engines, and arranging flowers on top of multi-layer cakes, I really just enjoy cooking and baking.

fresh lemon zest

When I was growing up, my grandma made lemon bars all the time. They were probably one of her signature desserts (that and texas sheet cake!) – and they were the only lemon dessert I would touch. At least, most of the time. Sometimes I would only reach for the chocolate. 

I had no interest in anything lemon until I was older; in fact I’m pretty sure that when I was a kid, I was convinced lemon was an “old person” flavor. You know? Let’s just say I’m very glad to be said old person now.

Side note: my kids love lemon things and it makes me so happy!

I missed out on so many delicious lemon options as a kid. Ha. 

lavender lemon bars in the pan

Anyway – her lemon bars were so good. My mom loved them too. When I found this recipe and started making it a few years ago, I knew it had to be similar. I’ve made them for a few years now and they are always such a hit.

Since I adore the lavender lemon combo, I figured it would work perfectly with these bars. My lavender lemonade is one of my favorite drinks ever! It’s a classic yet unique combination that always just works.

The shortbread crust is lovely. The filling is SO good – this amazing lemon curd that gets crispy and crunchy on top but stays a little saucy in the center. The bars are good at room temperature (but softer) and also right from the fridge (just firmer). They are about as rich and decadent as  a lemon bar can get.

I rarely think of lemon desserts being rich and decadent, but these are! You only need a small square to be satisfied. While making them in a 9×13 pan will give you 16 to 20 actual “bar-sized” squares, you could definitely get more smaller squares out of it for serving! 

lavender lemon bars

To get the full lavender flavor here, I love to use both dried culinary lavender and just a drop of lavender extract. You guys always ask me where I get the dried lavender. I tend to buy these bags because it gives me so much and it’s culinary grade. It’s perfect and lasts a nice long while. 

I also like to add a bunch of fresh lemon zest to my lemon bars. The recipe doesn’t call for this but I find that’s where all the best flavor is. That classic, sweet lemon flavor that is just so, so good. Oh and vanilla extract! I can’t do desserts without it.  (more…)
