Summer Lime Bars
So I had to find a new way to do that -- and one of my other favorite things is lemon-y and lime-y stuff. So I started thinking about lemon bars... Which led me to thinking about lime bars -- with THRIVE Summer Limeade! So I gave it a go! And it was a success. The flavor of these bars was wonderful! I did get a little distracted while they were baking, so they came out a little darker than I wanted. And I opted not to add food coloring, so they don't look lime-y. But they are! And they are oh-so-good!
Here's how I did it!
SUMMER LIME BARS
For the Crust:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup THRIVE Butter Powder + 2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup white sugar*
2 cups all-purpose flour*
For the lime layer:
2 tablespoons THRIVE Whole Egg Powder + 1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups white sugar*
1/4 cup all-purpose flour*
2 tablespoons THRIVE Summer Limeade powder + 2 tablespoons water
THRIVE Powdered Sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, THRIVE Powdered Butter Powder plus water, 2 cups flour, and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of a greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden.
In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs, THRIVE Whole Egg Powder plus water, and THRIVE Summer Limeade plus water. (I recommend using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer on high speed to fully blend the egg powder). Pour over the baked crust.
Bake for an additional 15 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. Once cooled, sprinkled with THRIVE Powdered Sugar.
