Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Gltuen Free Friday: coconut lemon bars

This recipe again was from the Gluten Free Bible. I really like this cookbook.


The recipe was pretty easy

Crust
1 c gluten free shortbread cookies crushed
1 stick of butter- melted

Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray
Combine cookies and butter- mix well. Press into pan.

Filling
1 package of cream cheese- softened/room temp
grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
1 egg
2 tbp of sugar
1 c white chocolate chips
1 c flaked coconut
1/2 c chopped macadamia nuts

Beat cream cheese, lemon peel, juice, egg, and sugar on low speed until smooth Spread on crumbs crust.
Add white chocolate chips to next layer. Then coconut, then nuts.
Bake 30 minutes and cool. Cover and refridgerate.

These were delicious. It is important to push each layer down with a fork. We highly enjoyed this cookies over Christmas. Creamy with lemon but not lemony enough it was too tart. Will definitely do again!

Cheers,
Lauren
