It probably doesn't really count as making this recipe, because I majorly tweaked it to use what I had on hand (mixed veg instead of just green beans, no french fried onions, used little pasta shells instead of rice, and used leftover potato leek soup instead of cream-of...) so I'll just say that Sunday's dinner was inspired by this recipe and leave it at that.
These are in the oven now. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8x8 pan because I will almost assuredly eat the entire pan of them, probably by the end of the night tonight.
Fro's Tweak Alert: I made lime bars instead of lemon, because I had four fresh limes in the fridge. I added the zest of the limes to the lime mixture. (I bet it would be good added to the crust, too, come to think of it.)
I was thinking, while mixing it all up, that this is kind of a good recipe canvas for any sort of citrus fruit bars recipe. Lime is a pretty safe sub for lemon, but I might have to make this again and try some different combos and maybe add some spices to the fun. Cranberry-tangerine? Or maybe orange-clove? Lemon-cardamom?
I adore shortbread and have never made it. I will be trying this one soon!
