I was watching the food network and during a commercial break Giada De Laurentis showed how to make Lemon Thyme Bars. I had all the ingredients and decided to make it with my Daughter-in-Law.
The recipe can be found here: Lemon Thyme Bars.
First we made a trip to to Perennial Herb Garden to pick Thyme. We separated the leaves from the stems and then chopped. We needed 2 Tablespoons. We had one.
So we repeated the whole thing over again.
We combined 1 cup of flour, the thyme and 1/2 tsp. salt.
We turned the mixture on low and gradually added the flour/thyme mixture.
The dish was supposed to be 8 x 8, Mine was 10 x 10. That explains a lot about how these turned out.
After pressing we baked them for about 30 minutes. I say "about" because I forgot to turn on the timer. This was about the time we discovered the Black Widow Spider (featured in my last post).
We don't know how long that was.
It seemed longer than 30 minutes though.
But pressing onward, we mixed 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar until smooth and spread it over the Lemon Thyme Bars. Then we let it sit for a half hour to firm up.
We gave them two thumbs up, but will look for an 8 x 8 pan if we decide to make them again!
