Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Lemon Bars

I might be on a bit of a lemon kick. These bars are so easy to make. My husband doesn't usually try any of my baked goods/dessert recipes, but he did try this one. His reaction was "Lemony". I'm taking that as a good thing since he ate the whole piece!

Makes 32 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup light butter, softened
1 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 1/2 cups Splenda granulated
1/2 cup lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups of the flour and confectioners' sugar. Cut in the butter. Mix well until the dough resembles pie dough consistency. Press the dough into a 9x13-inch baking pan.

Bake @20 minutes or until edges start to get golden brown.

In a medium bowl, beat together the remaining 1/4 cup flour, egg substitute, Splenda, lemon juice and zest until combined. Pour the mixture over the baked crust.

Bake another 20 minutes or until the lemon topping has set.

MY SPIN: I used the juice from the lemon I 'zested' and added bottled lemon juice to that to make the 1/2 cup. This can be served as is or your can sprinkle a little confectioners' sugar on top.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
