Picnic season is officially here and this month we are reinvent one of our favorite summertime desserts: lemon bars! While Lemon Bars are an ooey gooey treat, they are definitely not picnic basket friendly. Try our version, Lemon Bar Roll Ups, that taste just as good without the mess, eggs and added fat. Plus they can be prepared in about 15 minutes!
Lemon Bar Roll Ups
1 Package of Crescent Rolls
2 Meyer Lemons thinly cut into rounds
½ cup of powdered sugar
¼ of stick of butter (melted)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Slice 2 Meyer lemons into 1/4” rounds, then gently slice off the rinds and cut each slice in half.
On a separate clean surface un-roll all of the crescent rolls and divide them into their triangle shapes. Brush each piece of dough with a generous amount of butter and then sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon of powdered sugar over the butter. Cover the powdered sugar with a small squeeze of the unsliced lemon.
Lay out two halves of the sliced lemon onto the dough and follow the crescent roll instructions to roll up the dough. Place all of the Lemon Roll Ups onto a non-stick baking sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for about five minutes and dust with more powered sugar to finish.
Makes 8 rolls.
