(quiet music) – Is there a breeze in here? (loud bass drop) Recipes, life hacks, and everyday tips. Welcome to Sasha in Good Taste. Hi there, welcome to Sasha in Good Taste. Today, we’re going to be
making some lemon bars, and I’ve started to kind
of perfect this recipe, so I’m excited to share it with you. I think we should get started. We’re gonna start by making our crust. Simple ingredients here. We’ve got a cup of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, an 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt, two sticks of butter. I never said these were healthy, guys. Whisk this together until it forms a dough consistency. I spin the bowl a little bit just to make sure that,
since it’s a hand mixer, we get everything we need to. I want all the butter
to mix with the flour and for there to be no clumps. Now that our dough is ready, we’re gonna place it in this cling wrap and chill it for about 30 minutes. Once all of our dough
is on this cling wrap, we will flatten it out so that its easier for us
to mold when it’s chilled. Fold the cling wrap over one side and start flattening out our dough, moving it around, get it nice and even, fold the other side. We’re gonna chill this
for about a half an hour, and, in the mean time, we are gonna make our lemon filling. Now that we put our dough
in the refrigerator, I have to say, there is a
lot of sugar in lemon bars. So, believe it or not, my lemon bars actually
have less sure in them, but it’s still 2 1/2 cups. Six eggs. Okay, we are ready to beat
this egg and sugar mixture. (chill jazz beat) Once your sugar and egg
mixture is fully combined, you will add in some of your lemon zest. So, I use a micro-blade to
get my lovely lemon zest. About two tablespoons full. And one cup of lemon juice. Now, we’re gonna add in two cups of flour. Gently, so that it doesn’t get everywhere. Combine this until there’s
no more flour blotches and lumps anywhere. (chill jazz beat) All right, I think we are done. So, I’m gonna go grab our
dough in a couple minutes, and we will be ready to start this awesome lemon bar process. All right, so now that
our dough is chilled, we are going to grease
these fun little squares. Ta-da! Your filling is going to go over the top, so it doesn’t have to
be perfect on the edges. So now that we have all our crust in these cute little containers, I’m gonna throw these guys in the oven and have my husband
watch them for 15 minutes while I take a little cat nap. – It’s going really good. It’s been about 30 seconds and, uh, ooh, I think they’re– yeah, I think they’re doing all right. It’s minute seven. Phew. I’ve been making a lot of noise, so I don’t know if Sasha
is getting any good sleep, but I’m trying to keep it quiet. (rolling sound) (crashing sound) That’s pretty cool. (much louder crashing sound) Strike! Hey, babe, I think we’re ready for you. Babe! – I’ve got my eyes open, I can see you! Okay, are you sure they’re ready? – How was your nap? – Was that 15 minutes? – Yeah. – Was it? – Come on, try it. Try it once! – Like, do like, the ground bowl? (crashing sound) (video game sound effects) – So, we have taken our
crusts out of the oven, and let them cool for about 10 minutes, and now we’re gonna add our lemon filling. You want to make sure it
doesn’t fill up all the way, leaving about 1/2 an inch,
more of a centimeter. (guitar music) Okay, so we’re gonna pop these in the oven at 350° for 30 minutes, and then we’ll let them cool, and they’ll be ready to eat. All right, I am ready to eat one! These look so good. Babe! Come try one! – They’re done?
– They’re done! – Awesome! See how much powdered sugar
I have on my fingers? Oops. They’re good. – Nice catch. – Good job. Those are really good. – Yes.
– I’m really happy with them. – Bomb.
– Bomb. – Dot com. – Go try them out, send us pictures of yours, we really want to see them. Comment below what you think, subscribe so you can see all the fun stuff we’re doing later. That’s a good sign. – Go try them. – Bye! (chill jazz beat)
