Lemon bars are delightful, but we love this recipe because it puts a little twist on a conventional lemon bar. Each bite is sandwiched between a layer of crust that offers a nice contrast of texture with the creamy lemon filling. While you can bake the crust prior to baking the whole pie, we sometimes skip the pre-baked crust for two reasons: we like a good shortcut when baking, and because patience is hard to come by with this sweet confection!
We love a good lemon bar, but this lemon chess recipe offers a few variations on the conventional lemon bar experience; lemon chess calls for the addition of egg yolks, buttermilk, and finishes baking with a golden brown top crust. Now, sometimes we like to serve this as a pie when we’re looking for something a little fancier, but for less formal occasions we switch the pie plate for the baking dish and cut these into squares. Really, though, there’s no hard-and-fast rule to serving this dessert, but we like to dust a little powdered sugar at the end for a little extra sweetness. Whether for a social event or for the sake of having a treat at home, go ahead and pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and grab a square (or two!) of this lemony delight.
