Sometimes I get extremely tired of the same offerings at the two health food stores in my town and need to take a forty minute round trip to my local Trader Joe's. While there, I stock up on some of my favorite gluten free pasta for the family, some Trader Joe's cookie butter for the husband and some lemon curd for me. And a glass of watermelon cold pressed juice. YUM!!!
Everyone get's something they like and everyone is happy.
Of course, that twenty minute ride home gets me thinking of what I could make with the cookie butter and the lemon curd and the pasta. (Thank goodness I always think to buy an extra of each--one for eating and one for baking with).
Today I came up with these amazing (AMAZING!!) lemon curd bars. If you are a lemon bar fan go stock up on some lemon curd right now. These take the traditional lemon bar to a whole new level! Just the right amount of lemon mixed with the perfect amount of buttery crust.
My mouth is watering.
So is yours.
Lemon lovers, unite. Start your ovens.
