Jenni's Lemon Bars
The Original Recipe:
I saw the picture of this, and I knew what I must do with my home made strawberry rhubarb jam!! I found this on recipesofacheapskate.blogspot.
I got many compliments from them as I took them to our ladies night group at the church. I was told they could be wedding cookie material!! woohoo! Thanks Jenni!
My thoughts, though, were that something was missing from the crust. I am not going to rewrite it my own way because I think I still will tweak it next time (yes, there will be a next time.) I think next time I will add some real sugar, maybe not as much flour, or maybe more butter (I used 2 sticks) and possibley some lemon in the crust and/or some ginger...For the filling, I used only 1 cup of sugar because I used my home made jam that had sugar in it. I used about 10 tbls. of lemon. The filling was AMAZING!!
