EwE - No-Bake Lemon Bars - When Life Gives You Lemons ...
I chose this week's Eating with Ellie theme of "When life gives you lemons ...". I certainly feel that life has given me quite a few lemons of late, so the theme is appropriate.
I chose to make Ellie's No-Bake Lemon Bars, from So Easy. You can also find the recipe here under a different moniker.
These are just brilliant - all the luxury if cheesecake with fewer calories. I didn't use the pasteurized egg product - I don't even know what that is. I just used a little more lemon juice to bind it together, which worked fine. I found the base to be a little crumbly, but I notice that in the photo, Ellie's base looks crumbly too. I guess that is how it is meant to be, but if you want a firmer base, use a little more butter.
