Getting Your Bake On: Step by Step
Now that we're all set with our ingredients, let's get baking. Trust me; this recipe is as easy as pie (or should I say, lemon bars).
Step 1: Preheat and Prep
- First things first, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x9-inch (23x23 cm) baking pan and set it aside.
Step 2: Making the Crust
- In a bowl, mix together the flour, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt.
- Cut in the cold, cubed butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press this mixture into the bottom of your prepared baking pan.
- Bake the crust for about 20 minutes or until it's lightly golden.
Step 3: Mixing Up the Lemon Filling
- While your crust is baking, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, and another pinch of salt.
- Beat in the eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and the golden touch of Nutra Nourished Turmeric until everything is well combined.
Step 4: The Magic Happens
- Pour this luscious lemon and turmeric mixture over your baked crust.
- Pop it back into the oven for another 20-25 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden, and the center is set.
Step 5: Let It Cool (If You Can Wait)
- Once you've taken these lemony wonders out of the oven, let them cool in the pan on a wire rack for a bit. That irresistible aroma of freshly baked lemon bars infused with Nutra Nourished Turmeric will fill your kitchen - get ready for the compliments!
Step 6: The Sweet Finish
- Once your turmeric-infused lemon bars are cooled, dust the top with a little powdered sugar. It's like adding a sprinkle of extra love
