Like lemon bars?
I invite you to expand your horizons.
Meet the key lime bar!
Yes, they look like a lemon bar, but ... they taste like key lime!
This is what happens when you find a bag of key limes price reduced at the grocery store! I got 17 key limes for 89 cents!
Key Lime Bars - Adapted from Patrick and Gina Neely
1/2 C butter (I used 1/4 C butter, 1/4 C applesauce)
1/4 C powdered sugar
1 C flour (I used white whole wheat)
1 C sugar
1/8 C + 1 T lime juice
1 tsp. lime zest
In a medium bowl, combine flour, powdered sugar, melted butter and applesauce.
Mix until a moist dough is formed. Press dough into a lightly greased 11x7 baking dish.
Bake the crust at 350 for about 20 minutes until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, squeeze those limes to make some lime juice!
Go ahead and zest a few too...
Then, combine in a medium bowl: eggs, sugar, and flour and mix well.
Add in the lime juice.
And, stir in the lime zest.
Pour the topping over a slightly cooled crust.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes until the center is set.
Allow to cool completely before serving and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
