POTD - Snowbears

POTD - Snowbears
©2010 Kristin Corlett

My first attempts a few years ago were delicious, but unsuccessful.  (The center was never cooked until set - I blame my oven)  I was never able to give these away in my cookie plates because of the undone aspect.  Tom and I had to eat them ourselves.  Bummer!

My first and only attempt today yielded a delicious and very successful Lemon Butter Snowbar. I misread the name the first time I saw it and called them Snowbears.  The name stuck.

A quick search online of the Land O Lakes Recipe collection (I have the 1990 Cookie Collection booklet) gave me the Snow Dusted Lemon Bars.  Exactly the same recipe but I guess they gave them a new name.  They will always be snowbears to me.  Always.

Looking for a new recipe?  This one is a hit!

I can't wait for my cookie plate to arrive. Lemon snowbears are my favorite!

Along with coconut dreambars, which you deliberately underbake so the center is gooey.

Does Tom have a brother named Doug?

Those look like they take about two steps beyond my baking capabilities. I'm such an impaired baker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I put them in my favorites. I do love lemon bars but haven't made them in years. Thank you. I do like your name for them.
