Awesome Cookbook -

I won this cookbook over at Annie Bakes.  I love Southern Living and Off the Eaten Path is so fun.  I think I have read it cover to cover.   This cookbook is compiled of amazing recipes from different dives all across the south.  I know you would love it - plus it would make a great gift.  Thanks Anne for the great give-away!


I made the Lemon Bars from the Magnolia Bakery in Beaufort, South Carolina.  We thought they were amazing!

Magnolia Bakery Cafe's Lemon Bars

Parchment Paper
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice - (about 4 lemons)
2 Tbsp. lemon zest
3 Tbsp all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a lightly greased 9 x 13 with parchment paper.  Place butter in a 4 cup measuring cup, cover and microwave on high 1 minute or until melted. Let cool 8 minutes.

Whisk together melted butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl til blended.  Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs in a medium bowl until blended.  Whisk in granulated sugar and next 2 ingredients.  Stir together 3 Tbsp flour and baking powder; whisk into egg mixture.  Pour filling evenly over hot baked crust.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until filling is set. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes.  Lift from pan, using parchment as handles.  Cool completely on a wire rack. Chill, if desired. Cut into cars and dust generously with powdered sugar before serving.
