I posted these in July 2012 but thought they were worth revisiting. We have had these many times in our home. With Spring on its way in, St. Patty's Day and Easter, folks are looking for new recipes.
Hope you will try these. Simple, easy and delicious.
Creamy Lime Bars or Green Bars
1 1/2 cups crushed Pretzels
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 - 14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs beaten
1/2 cup lime juice, freshly juiced, about 4 limes
zest of all the limes
powdered sugar (for garnish)
lime slices (for garnish)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13x9 pan with parchment paper or spray well with baking spray, either will work.
In a medium sized bowl, add the ingredients for your crust, mix and mash well. Next spread into your prepared pan, flatten out and bake for 7 to 10 minutes.
While the crust is baking prepare your filling.
Mix all your filling ingredients together and pour into the baked crust. Return to the oven for 25 minutes. Allow to cool and store in the fridge. Chill for several hours before serving.
Slice and sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with a lime slice for presentation if you want.
Happy St. Patrick's Day and come on Spring!!
