Lemon Squares

When I got married I received the most practical gifts from one of my husbands aunts…

…a recipe box full of her recipes…. Pretty neat…right?

That was 13 years ago…

I haven’t quite gotten around to making all of those recipes…there were a lot…

A little while ago I went through that recipe box and my eyes settled on this little gem…

 

Lemon Squares

Ingredients

2 Cups Flour

3/4 Cup Sugar

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Salt

2 Cup Coconut (optional)

1 Cup Margarine

I Pkg Lemon Pie Filling

 

Directions

Blend Together dry ingredients. Cut in butter and mix by hand until ingredients form a crumble. Press half of mixture in bottom of 9 x 9 pan. Prepare lemon pie filling and spread over the pressed bottom. Sprinkle remaining crumble over top but do not press.

I love the tang of the lemon paired with the sweetness of the crumble – a perfect combination.

I love anything lemon…the perfect flavour.

Passed down recipes are the best recipes…

How was your Halloween? Spooky I hope!

I have all of my decorations taken down and out away for another year.

Now it’s time to think ahead to Christmas, isn’t it?

But before we begin Christmas here at Alderberry Hill…I have a vacation to go on!

Yippee…the countdown is on…4 days to Florida and Walt Disney World.

I am super excited…we are going to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party…how awesome it that?

Oh, and we are going to Kennedy Space Centre too…for the first time! I am so looking forward to it.

Speaking of Space…My son’s birthday party was this past weekend…we had “Bricks 4 Kidz” in to build a motorized space shuttle…it was so fun…here are a few pics…
