Lemon Crumble Bars
Summer time calls for more summery light deserts and these Lemon Crumble Bars might just be a great one you can add to your spring and summer dessert recipe list! People tend to want to stay away form the heavier desserts in the summer like chocolate caked and even cheese cake. That's why pies and crumbles are so great, because they use things that are in season, that our body is naturally craving at that time of season. Lemon is such a typical summer flavour and a favourite to a lot of people, the lightness and tartness seems to just go well with a fresh spring or summer day, with the sun shining and the weather warm.
This recipe for lemon crumble bars couldn't be easier either. Especially if you just buy lemon pie filling instead of making the lemon curd from scratch. There is also the recipe for the lemon curd that you can make yourself at home, and it's also not too difficult to make so if you have the time, it's always nice to make from scratch. It would be a fun recipe to make with kids and then share with friends and family. Or to make for someone who needs a bit of cheering up!
Crumbles became popular in Britain in the time during World War 2, people couldn't really afford the ingredients to make pastry for pies at that time, because of the rationing that would happen. People always had a good amount of each of these needed ingredients so they would just mix them all together, adding the fruit in and would make a crumble. Later in America, they were called brown betty's or crisps, and they can be made even with oatmeal. The fruits most often used are lemon, apple, strawberry, blueberry, cherry, rhubarb, and mixed combinations of all of these. Try out this awesome recipe!
