I officially have Fall fever. The weather in Boston last weekend was perfect. The cool, crisp air and cloudless blue sky was perfect for boating, walking around town and even strolling along the beach. I have officially been launched into full blown pumpkin carving, apple picking, leaf raking cravings.
Coming home to 90 degree weather wasn't easy but I am still hopeful that Fall-like temperatures will reach Atlanta soon.
As a farewell to summer - I've decided to post one final summertime recipe.
I'm not sure why I categorize lemon squares into the "Summertime" recipe category except that their sunny yellow color just reminds me of a warm summer day. The crispy, buttery crust and delicate lemon filling with its bright flavor is the perfect treat for any day.
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
12 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pour filling over warm crust. Reduce oven to 325. Bake 20 minutes.
Cut into squares. (I made 24 roughly 2 inch squares.)
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Serve. I like to eat my lemon squares with a glass of ice cold lemonade.
I'ts a little known fact that I'm not a big fan of hanging out on the beach in the summer. It's not that I don't LIKE the beach - it's more of an aversion to sand in my bathing suit and prolonged sun exposure that I don't enjoy. I actually really enjoy hearing the sound of the ocean, searching for sea shells and walking along the shoreline.
We completely enjoyed the beach last weekend - even if we were in sweatshirts. (My kind of beach trip for sure.)
