But the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat...unless you add lots of sugar!

Kai, Viv, and Gigi were the baking Fehries today although there are no pics of Gigi because she was on me in the front pack. We looked in the fridge and found lots of lemons so decided on lemon bars. We just chose the recipe from with the most stars.

This recipe kind of had two parts the crust part and the lemony yummy part.
Viv is adding flour for the crust part.

This recipe has two of the three all time favorite cooking jobs - using the hand juicer, and cracking eggs (the third is adding chocolate chips). So we had a few issues over sharing the juicer.

Fortunately this recipe had three eggs so no one was left out in the egg crack.

Then they made an awesome statue out of lemon rinds and egg shells!

Kai does the final mix.

Waaaaallaaaa! Yummy. But I like more lemon goo...I think we might need to keep trying recipes.
