Expert Tips

  • Did You Know? Grate only the yellow portion of the lemon; the white portion, or pith, is very bitter.
  • Substitution: Rise to the occasion! Self-rising flour can be used in this recipe. (Do not omit baking powder and salt.)
  • Success: To ensure recipe success, do not use vegetable oil spreads.
  • How-To: For a bright lemon colour, add 4 to 6 drops of yellow food colour with the eggs and sugar mixture.
  • Purchasing: One medium lemon should give you just enough peel and juice to make these refreshing bar cookies.
  • Variation: Make Lemon-Coconut Squares: Stir 1/2 cup (125 mL) flaked coconut into egg mixture in step 2.
