I came across this recipe for Lemon Lavender Squares in the back of a Country Living magazine and knew I had to try it. Because I am so organized, I set the magazine in a safe place and promptly forgot where I put it! That was last October. Fast forward to last weekend and I finally found the magazine again!
The recipe is an excerpt printed in the October 2013 edition from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook!
I have to admit I usually find lemon squares turn out a bit thin and end up a bit runny. But not these babies! They were a nice thick square with a lightly floral crust and an extra tangy lemon filling that stays nice and firm!
Just a quick word of warning! I have started to try and shoot my photos using manual focus. I hope they are not a total mess but practice makes perfect! Have I ever got a lot of practicing to do!
Since I made these Lemon Lavender Squares exactly as the recipe was printed, click here to view it via Country Living Magazine!
These look really good!
Thank you Sarah 🙂

Oh my girls love lemon bars and I never can get them right. Can’t wait to try these.
You will be glad to know I had the same problem Barb! These bars come together well and hold their shape nicely!

Oh, these look yummy and I love the addition of lavender.
Thanks Theresa! I love that the lavender adds just a subtle flavour 🙂
These look so beautiful! I think your photos look great, but I have zero knowledge of using anything but auto with my camera!
Thank you Cajun! Learning to shoot in manual is a long process (for me anyway!!)

My husband loves anything with lemon so I can’t wait to give these a try. Putting that magazine away for safe keeping and then forgetting where you put it, sounds just like ME 🙂 Being organized is wonderful but it can also sometimes throw a kink in your plans…especially if you’re me …
