Heather do these lemon bars freeze well?


:lol: I don't know I've never made them! :shifty: :oops: I can't see why they wouldn't.

The only thing with lemon is that it *might* go a little runny once thawed again, but the taste would be the same.

I think I will try the bark! Thanks for the recipe.

alexk wrote:Baking day for me today; one of my favourite days in the holiday hoopla. My kitchen's a mess and I love it :).

My daughter and I just made a batch of the easiest Christmas bark - it's the perfect blend of salty and sweet.

3 cups white chocolate wafers (I buy them at the bulk barn)
1 tsp oil (keeps the choc from burning)

Melt choc over low-med heat then add:

1 cup salted peanuts
1 cup dried cranberries
3 to 4 cups of Golden Grahams cereal (hard to get here; our Loblaws and Sobeys don't sell it. Our local COOP has it or I stock up when I'm in the US)

Mix well and spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool for a few hours and break in pieces.

I put in in celophane bags (from the bulk barn) and give it to friends/neighbours as a holiday gift :).

Apparently you can get Golden Grahams at Walmart? I am going to check it out. This would be a great "treat" for my clients! Thanks!

Big, fluffy white snow storm here today - perfect day to bake :).

Made a batch of my Christmas bark and some fudge. I'm about to start a batch of lemon cookies (love lemon). It's my first time making them; if they turn out, I'll post the recipe.

Lemon cookies are a hit - and very easy! Hope your husband likes them, Dr. S :). They make a big batch.

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 package of lemon pie filling & dessert mix (Sheriff's)
1tbsp water
2 cups flour

Cream butter and sugar.
Add pie mix and water - blend well. Add flour. Shape into balls and press w/ a fork or spoon.

Bake @ 325 for 12-15 minutes

Lemon dip (brush on when they come out of oven)

3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar

Heat until sugar melts. Brush on cookies; let dry. Enjoy!

If anybody wants a recipe for chocolate fudge christmas cookies that are so alluring to bernese mountain dogs that they will sneak into the kitchen, knock a case of mandarin oranges off the counter, pull a tupperware of cookies off the counter, eat them all, then keep you up all night pacing with their irritated stomach and ultimately cost you $250 at the vet's, pm me.

On a TV commercial (The Weather Network) someone was talking about how he's looking forward to his mother's turkey and lemon meringue pie. Lemon meringue pie??? For Christmas??? :naughty: Lemon meringue pie is for Easter. :roll:
