pink lemonade bars WHAT
So I like pink. This much should be clear by now. Someone told me the other day that I never wear pink, to which I responded, “AREYOUCRAZY” because, seriously, look at my color palette.
Ahem, whatever, moving on… The pink obsession obviously translates well into my favorite foods. And this one here is no different. In middle school, I was crazy for bake sales. My lemon bars received rave reviews back then… But those ones came out of the box. I decided to revisit middle school AGAIN this week for a throwback that- this time- was made from scratch AND gluten-free, of course.
Using this recipe, I traded out the all-purpose flour for almond flour, and a 1/4 cup of the crust’s flour for coconut flour. I’m still playing around with this whole gluten-free schtick so I added 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum to the crust and 1/4 tsp arrowroot to the filling but I have no clue if that made any difference… The end result fell apart easily but positively melted in my mouth. It was unbelievable, if I do say so myself. Seriously, come over quick before they’re all gone. Because I will eat every last one of these.
I think that what I’m trying to say is… I need to have a dinner party. Stat.
