Recipe FAQ + Tips
How do i know when the bar is finished? When the edges start to turn golden yellow and the middle is fixed and will not shake, you can judge whether the bar has finished cooking.
Use a glass pot: If you do not plan to exclude it, I suggest using a glass pot. Sometimes, when baked directly in a metal pan, lemons will have a slight metallic taste.
Do you see bubbles? do not worry! Sometimes the lemon stick has it, sometimes it doesn’t. They are produced by eggs that rise to the surface. They do not affect the taste at all. If you don’t like its appearance, be sure to sprinkle a lot of powdered sugar on it.
How to serve + storage
Make clean slices: Cleaning or even slicing can be very tricky. This is a reminder that works every time! Before adding the crust, line the pan with foil (sprayed with cooking oil) or parchment paper and bake. Continue to follow the written recipe.
Once fully cooked, let cool for 15-20 minutes, and then cool in the refrigerator or freezer for another 20-40 minutes. After cooling, use foil/parchment paper to remove a large piece of the whole lemon strip from the baking sheet. Using a sharp chef’s knife, immerse it in hot water to wipe off the moisture, then slice, and then slice the lemon strips. Continue to heat the knife before each piece.
Other ingredients: You can try lemon frosting or glaze instead of powdered sugar. Or, you can add a slice of lemon to each cube, or another slice of fruit, such as raspberry, blueberry, or strawberry slices.
How to store lemon bars: After cutting, store the lemon bars in an airtight container. Separate the layers with parchment paper to prevent them from sticking to each other.
