    SDB's Note:

    Modified from a recipe in the Penzeys ONE magazine, it derives a distinctive flavor with spices not normally seen in lemon bars. These are even better the second day.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    crust

    filling

    glaze

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350*. Combine all the crust ingredients (except butter) in a bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture is coarse and lumpy. Set aside about 1 cup of the crust mixture. Pat the remaining crust mixture into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from oven, but leave the oven on.
    2. 2
      Prepare the filling: combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the zest, lemon juice and eggs. Whisk the wet and dry together until well blended.
    3. 3
      Pour the filling over the warm crust. Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the top and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool.
    4. 4
      Prepare the glaze by mixing the lemon juice, zest and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle over the bars.

      Light, lemon-y and delicious; just what a lemon bar should be! Next time I'll try doubling the thyme in the crust and filling, since the current amount provides a very mild taste (almost imperceptible). Modifications: -used fresh thyme instead of dried -used zest of two lemons for filling -used juice of 1.5 lemons for filling -added ~1 tsp fresh thyme to filling -added ~1 tsp of salt to the filling -used juice of .5 lemon for glaze and enough powdered sugar for right consistency -poked small holes before applying glaze so it penetrates all layers
