For the most part the Christmas treats have been cooked and delivered. I took tins of sweets to the office team and a few friends. Pound cakes, cookies, brownies, sausage balls, sugar pecans and miscellaneous other dessert favorites.
This year, the favorite seemed to be Lemon Squares. This is a simple recipe that mama and ma-ma used to make.
1 box lemon cake mix
1/2 cup butter
1 cup pecans, chopped
8 oz. cream cheese
1 box confectioners sugar
Stir together cake mix, 1 egg, butter and pecans. Press into a greased 13 x 9 pan. Mix cream cheese, 2 eggs and confectioners sugar. Pour over crust and bake at #25 for 30 minutes or until brown.
(I didn’t take a photo… I know, I take photos of everything, but not this! Below is a photo I snagged from Google, but it is representative of the Lemon Bar.)
