  ALANA'S LEMON BARS (Gluten Free)

1/2 cup canola or safflower oil

1/2 cup white sugar

2 cups gluten free flour blend
(1/3 cup rice flower, 1/3 tapioca flower, and 1/3 sorghum flower to make one     cup)

1/2 cup canola or safflower oil

 4 eggs

 1 1/2 cups white sugar

 1/4 cup rice flo

2 lemons, juiced



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, blend together oil, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup rice flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.

Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.

Recipe from Paige

           I've never been one to follow recipes, or rules for that matter. Recently a friend of mine moved into the woods of Waldo County. We successfully foraged our entire meal from her property (for the most part)! I guess we now can constitute ourselves as true Maine girls. Fiddleheads sauteed in Tamari, potatoes (foraged from my Fathers' garden, which counts...) a salad of dandelion greens and butter for the potatoes flavored with fresh ramps.
