Lemon bars

by | Mar 26, 2021 | Desserts

The recipe of these delicious lemon bars is from my grandmother’s cookbook and it’s more than 60 years old. Lemon bars are one of the best desserts that will certainly bring a smile to your face. The filling is a soft lemon-butter cream between 2 double layered shortbread crust. The crust consists of 4 layers, which are glued with apricot jam.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
