Lemons Re-visited

I conducted a taste test as a follow up to Wednesday's Lemon-licious post, where I proclaimed that the Magic Lemon Meringue Pie was better than Lemon Bars. I baked a pan of my mom's French Lemon Bars and the same three people that previously enjoyed the pie sampled the bars. The vote was unanimous--pie wins, pie wins! The pie was deemed tarter and more lemony, for one tester it was a close call but he still said the pie won by a small margin.

I still stand by my previous statement, feel free to conduct your own home taste test. Just to let you know, even though the pie won the taste test, three-quarters of the Lemon Bars are gone already, we wouldn't want them to go to waste now would we?!

Since I've been focused on lemons, I thought I'd share this picture of my nephew Jacob sucking on lemons for a birthday party game. The lemons were not extremely sour to make him scowl so fiercely, Jacob had chapped, cracked lips. Ouch!

I can attest that they were pretty sour as I had to eat the lemons too! Talk about puckered lips...whew!
