Strawberry Lemonade Bars

October 26, 2009

I had a terrifying moment today. I realized that I had forgotten about my strawberries that I had picked at home and delicately transported back to the city…two weeks ago. Surely they must be ruined! I was heartbroken at the thought of having to throw them out. In a panic I Googled “what do I do with my mushy strawberries?!” (yes, with that punctuation, because I was that upset) and the first result was this absolutely perfect recipe for strawberry lemonade bars from Baking Bites . (I’ve actually found great recipes on this blog before, like for homemade Girl Scout cookies that have yet to be tested but look delicious).

But, seriously, how perfect is this idea? To me, there’s nothing that says Summer more than strawberries or lemonade, so I love the combination of the two into a tasty dessert. Mine ended up a bit thicker (and pie shaped) because I didn’t have the right size pan, and the consistency may be a tad bit off since I beat everything by hand instead of with a food processor and mixer, but they were scrumptious (if I do say so myself). They have a lovely mix of tartness and sweetness that’s all balanced out by the buttery crust. This is quite the refreshing way to top off a summer day.
