They’re here! Lemon bars! 🍋 Creamy lemony filling with a soft buttery base, (but magically no butter is involved).
If you choose to use turmeric powder to add some yellow colouring to the filling, add just a pinch at a time. It’s easy to add too much and end up with fluorescent looking lemon bars. For those who are wondering, you can’t taste the turmeric ☺️
If you have a sweet tooth (ie. my husband) stick to the 1/3 cup of rice malt syrup in the lemon filling. If not you can use 1/4 cup and the lemon bars will still be plenty sweet.
A presentation tip:
When the pan has come out of the oven after baking the base, I like to add some coconut oil to the inside edges of the pan and stick the baking paper down. Be careful, don’t burn yourself! This makes it easier for when you pour in the lemon filling so the paper doesn’t fold over into the filling and it also creates straighter edges along the lemon bars when set.
If you create these Lemon Bars, I would love to see them on Instagram if you’re over there! Please be sure to use #amylecreations, so I don’t miss it!
