Another variation of those famous magic layer bars, this one gets it's title from the combination of salty, sweet, crunchy, and creamy (Which is what most of us chickies clamor for when having an "attack"). I think some of my male coworkers pretend to suffer from PMS occasionally, just so I'll bring them a pan of these treats!
Tangy citrus frosting for rich bars (fingers), perfect for the holidays or other special occasions. There are three parts to the recipe, but it's very easy to put together and the results are delicious.
After reading so many recipes on here for 7 Layer Bars, I decided to post my tried and true recipe for these delicious things. They are chewy and crisp and yummy and gooey. You will not be disappointed with these. They are my Christmas baking tradition because they are so darn easy to make. No mixing bowl!
This recipe is from a Cook's Illustrated article by Susan Logozzo about perfecting the lemon bar. NOTE: The lemon filling must be added to a warm crust. The 30 minute chilling time and 20 minute baking of the crust should allow plenty of time to prepare the filling. If not, make the filling first and stir to blend just before pouring it onto the crust. Prep time includes 30 minute chilling time for crust.
If you love lemon the way our family does you will love these lemon squares! Just the slightest hint of coconut in the bottom layers gives it just the right touch. Lemony delicious layer completes the top! Hmmmmm! So delicious you won't be able to stop at just one!
Named after the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia, the first time this square was published under that name was in the early 1950's in the Vancouver Sun newspaper! This version of the original bar is from Company's Coming - 150 Delicious Squares! Later versions change the vanilla custard layer to mint or peanut butter but the original is my favourite.
You can make this a day ahead of a special occasion or keep it in the freezer. I used to freeze half because I'm very weak & I would eat the whole thing myself BUT I soon discovered that it tastes good even when its frozen!
This recipe was found in a insert in the paper called American Profile and was made by a lady named Carolyn Hayes from Elba NY. A guy in our office makes these for us and they never last long. He did say that it takes a while to get them perfect. All I know is these are too good not to share. i made these using silicon baking sheets and the first batch took around 20 minutes the others around 19- watch them carefully adding 2 minutes at a time until the edges start turning brown. also beware that your spatula to remove will become encrusted with the toffee and harder to scoop off the cookies- scrape the spatula beteewn batches. these are still the best ever!
These are a very rich, bar type cookie. Easy to prepare, a favorite with young and old alike. Great for picnics, potlucks, holiday cookie trays or any get together. Warning!! They can become "addictive" ;)
