I’m afraid I’ll be leaving you a fleeting post today, dear readers. I’m awaiting my ride to the Newcastle Quayside Market along with several hundred cupcakes, brownies and cookies. Fingers crossed for a good one.
These toasted almond lemon bars were one of the very first recipes that caught my eye in the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. Since that day I’ve been waiting for someone to notice how special they sounded. At last, my prayers were answered by Rebecca from Indecisive Baker.
Despite how delicious these bars are, I found the recipe a little too much of a faff to ever try again. The dough was a nightmare to work with, so soft even after allowing it to chill in the fridge. Trying to sculpt the sticky mess up the sides of my baking tin almost drove me to insanity, I must have washed my hands about twenty times.
So, my search for the perfect lemon bar continues. Do you have a reliable recipe? I’d love to give it a try.
