Lemony Lemon Squares

I admit. I’m an extremely lazy person.
So I’m always on the look-out for simple recipes that look good and sound promising.

I found this Lemony Lemon Squares scribbled in one of my old notebooks, prolly copied off some baking cookbook from the library.

They’re so simple to make and great for those who really love their lemons!
My friend Shing says that this should be prepared as a before-exam-paper treat, as the tart-ness of the squares will really make you pucker up!

Lemony Lemon Squares
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)

CRUST
1 cup            all-purpose flour
1/4 cup         granulated sugar
1/2 cup         cold, butter, cubed

TOPPING
3                   eggs
1 cup             granulated sugar
3 tbsp            all-purpose flour
2 tsp              grated lemon zest
1/2 cup          freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. Crust: In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Using your fingers, combine the butter with the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Press evenly into a greased 8-inch  square cake pan (i use a baking parchment on mine!) and bake in a preheated oven until its lightly browned around the edges, 12 – 15 mins

2. Topping: In a bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, flour, lemon zest and juice until just smooth. Don’t overbeat it! Then pour over the crust.

3. Return it into the oven and bake until set, which should take about 25 – 30 mins. Leave it to cool completely before cutting them into squares!

Optional, but you could dust the top with some icing sugar to make them look extra-irresistible!

Rice Krispie Treats

it’s my very first post – a recipe for a sweet treat to a sweet start! :p

This recipe is from crepesofwrath and I couldn’t resist trying it out as the steps were too simple and they looked soo good!

These Rice Krispie Treats are just bars of sweet goodness – with the gooey-ness of the marshmallows complementing the crisp of the cereals. They keep really well in the fridge and are great for the midday munchies! They’re also really addictive! My sister’s friend ate 4 bars at one go! Be warned!

Rice Krispie Treats from crepesofwrath
1 box of Rice Krispies Cereal
2 bags of Jet-Puffed Marshmallows (I used Rocky Mountain Marshmallows)
6 tablespoons butter
sprinkles (optional)

1. Grease a 9×13 pan (it has to be this size or something close to it – these are going to be giant rice krispie treats. Halve the recipe if you are using a smaller pan).

2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. When it’s completely melted, add the marshmallows and allow them to melt completely, stirring often so the marshmallows don’t burn.

3. Remove the marshmallow mixture from the heat and pour all of the cereal into the pot. Using a greased spatula or large spoon, stir the cereal and marshmallows together until thoroughly combined.

4. Pour the cereal and marshmallows into the greased pan. Even it flat with your greased spatula. Sprinkle the rice krispie treats with the sprinkles if you like, and allow them to cool completely before serving.

If you simply can’t wait (like me), just pop em into the freezer for 15mins or so and they’re ready to be served!
