Ginger, Lemon Bars
I originally made this recipe because I wanted to bake something unique and I happened to have some of these ingredients laying around from previous baking escapades. It’s seems like a weird combination at first, but trust me, these are reeeeally good!
- 1 1/2 stick room temperature butter
- 1 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1/2 cup crystallized ginger
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup + 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and 1/3 cup of sugar. Then stir in half a teaspoon of the lemon zest, ground ginger, crystallized ginger, and a pinch of salt. Stir in 1 1/2 cup of flour. Spread over a greased 13″ by 9″ pan and bake 12-15 min. Whisk the eggs, lemon juice, the rest of the sugar, and the rest of the lemon zest, 3 tbsp of flour, and baking powder until thoroughly incorporated. Pour over crust and bake 15-20 min.
