Yummy. . .

I read the LA Times. I’m one of “those”. . I don’t read every single article, I scan most of the headlines, I occasional read the editorials. I see what’s happening locally, I look through the Calendar Section,and the Business section. I usually leave the Sports section all to Todd.

I look forward to Mondays and the Health Section, Thursdays and the Home section. . and of course the SUNDAY TIMES. . . Editorial, Book Reviews, Coupons, Image, Travel. . .

I really sort of like reading the paper.

My favorite section. . the FOOD section on Wednesdays. I’ve found some great recipes. . sometimes it’s all too “foo foo”. . but sometimes, it’s just my speed. . . like this. . .

Joan’s on Third’s lemon bars

Total time: 45 minutes, plus cooling time for the crust

Servings: Makes 9 bars

Note: Adapted from Joan’s on Third.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, divided

1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting the bars

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter with 1 cup flour and the powdered sugar, stirring just until the dough comes together. Pat the dough into an 8-inch square pan and bake just until lightly golden, about 18 minutes. Remove and cool the pan on a wire rack to room temperature.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, baking powder and remaining 2 tablespoons flour. Whisk in the lemon juice and eggs until thoroughly combined. Pour the custard into the pan over the baked crust and bake again until it’s set, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove and cool the tart on a wire rack.

3. When cooled, dust lightly with additional powdered sugar and cut into bars. The lemon bars will keep for 1 week, refrigerated.
