EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Grate only the yellow portion of the lemon; the white portion, or pith, is very bitter.

Rise to the occasion! Self-rising flour can be used in this recipe. (Do not omit baking powder and salt.)

To ensure recipe success, do not use vegetable oil spreads.

For a bright lemon color, add 4 to 6 drops of yellow food color with the eggs and sugar mixture.

One medium lemon should give you just enough peel and juice to make these refreshing bar cookies.

Make Lemon-Coconut Squares: Stir 1/2 cup flaked coconut into egg mixture in step 2.
