Modified version of Giada's “lemon thyme bars.” Changes: I omitted thyme, and substituted the powdered sugar with regular sugar. Omission of thyme, good idea; substitution of regular sugar for powdered sugar, not the best idea I have ever had, but I didn’t want to buy powdered sugar hahaha…remember this is food in a jiffy…and that would have required going to the store. Still tasty, but if I were to make these again, I would definitely go with the powdered sugar. The gelato you ask? No, I did not make this—store bought.
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix butter, sugar, and 1/2 of lemon for juice, lemon zest if you like, add in dry ingredients. Butter a square glass dish. Take mixture and spread on the bottom of the dish. Preheat oven 325 degrees, bake for 30 minutes.
The lemon glaze:
1/2 of lemon for juice, 1/2 powdered sugar (I used regular sugar even for this), mix. Cool the bars, and top the glaze over bars in the dish. Let set, and serve.
