And to balance out the chocolate, I made some lemon squares. I know not everyone is a chocolate lover, but everyone loves some sweets.
This recipe is from my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and is very easy. I know I have some first time readers who are looking for easy to make recipes & this is definitely one of them.
1 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel, if desired
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Heat oven to 350ºF.
2. Mix flour, butter and powdered sugar. Press in ungreased square pan, 8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches, building up 1/2-inch edges.
3. Bake crust 20 minutes.
4. Beat granulated sugar, lemon peel, lemon juice, baking powder, salt and eggs with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust.
5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. Cool; dust with powdered sugar. Cut into about 1 1/2-inch squares.
