Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! As you can see today, I am dressed as Lady
Link! I got a little fancy hat and I took 2 belts
from my closet. Boom! Cosplay! I got a lot of requests from you guys for
something else Zelda related, so today, I am going to be making Triforce
Lemon Bars! Let’s get started! To make these Triforce Lemon Bars, we’re
gonna be making them in 2 separate parts. First we’re gonna be making the lemon bar
crust, and then we’re gonna be making the lemon bar mixture. So, starting with the crust, the things you
will need, will be: 1 cup of butter and that’s 2 sh-ticks if you’re buying
them at the grocery store, 2 cups of flour, some baking spray, a pan, the pan that I’m
using is 9 inches by 13 inches. 1/2 a cup of regular sugar, 1/2 a teaspoon
of salt, a spatula, a mixer, and 2 bowls, you’ll want 1 bowl to be large,
and 1 bowl to be a little bit smaller. Alright, let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do is grease
our pan, just taking a little bit of baking spray, but you can use butter
or whatever you’d like. Now take your smaller bowl and you’re gonna
put in your 2 sh-ticks of butter, Make sure your butter is room temperature,
so it’s soft, so it’s easy to blend up. And you’re gonna beat them until they’re
nice and light and fluffy. Now you’re gonna mix in your sugar, and
salt. Take your mixer, mix it up again. The final step, we’re gonna add flour slowly
to the mixture while we’re mixing it up so you don’t get a big pffffffff!
Dust cloud, and we’re finally gonna get to use the spatula, scrape down the sides so
it’s all evenly combined. Hyah! Hyah, hyah, hyah! Hyah, hyah, hyah,
hyah! I’ll put this away… Once you’re done mixing your crust, you’re
gonna take your pan, and you’re gonna put your crust mixture into the pan.
Now you’re just gonna pat it down, press the dough to the edges of the pan. Once you’ve got the crust in the bottom
of the pan, you’re gonna pre-heat your oven to 350 and we’re gonna bake this
for about 20 minutes. While the crust is in the oven baking, now we’re
gonna move on to the second part of this recipe. It is the lemon bar mixture! The things you will need to make this lemon
bar mixture are going to be: 1 cup of regular sugar, 1/2 a cup of flour,
4 fresh lemons, 4 eggs, a juicer, I’m using a hand juicer, a whisk, a big
mixing bowl, because, when I’m mixing together wet ingredients I don’t want it to go everywhere,
so I use the bigger bowl for this, a zester and a sharp cutting knife. Let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do is zest
1 entire lemon, and you just grate it, just like this! And you’re just gonna do
this to the entire lemon. And I put the lemon zest in this little pile
over here on the side of the cutting board, and we’re still gonna use
it, because we’re gonna use all 4 lemons. So now, take your fresh lemons, and you’re
gonna cut them in half. Now that we got them cut in half you’re
gonna take your little juicer, and this equals about 2/3 cup of freshly squeezed
lemon juice, and that’s what you want! So you’re just gonna squeeze until you get
2/3 cup. Alright and there we’ve got it, 2/3 cup
of freshly squeezed lemons. I’m gonna put this off to the side. Now you’re gonna take your big mixing bowl,
and you’re gonna add your sugar, and your flour, and we’re gonna whisk it
together so everything’s really well mixed. Now we’re gonna add our 4 eggs, and this
is where those lemon bars really get that yellow color, from the egg yolk. Now you’re gonna take your whisk again and
mix it all together. Then once it looks evenly combined, now we’re
gonna add our lemon juice! My favorite part, it smells so good! Ooooooh! And we’re gonna take lemon zest from
our 1 lemon and sprinkle that in there. Now you’re gonna mix it up again, 1 last
time until everything is smooth and combined. Mix, mix, mix, mix, mix! I just took the crust out of the oven, it’s
all done baking. As you can see there’s a light golden brown
around the edges, that’s what you want! I let this cool for
about 10 minutes, so it’s not hot anymore, it’s a little bit warm, and that
is the right temperature to pour on top of our lemon mixture. So take your lemon mixture, and you’re just
going to slowly pour it on top of the crust. Now, you’re gonna pop this back in the oven
and bake it for another 20 minutes on 350. So keep your ovens on. Once your lemon bars are all done baking you’re
gonna take them out of the oven and let them chill for about 10 minutes, and
then you’re gonna pop them into the refrigerator to chill for about 3 hours. I know it’s a long time, but it’s worth
the wait! I like my lemon bars served chilled. And I’ve just done that,
and now we’re gonna cut some shapes. So you’re gonna take a big cutting knife,
and I’m just going to cut some columns, just to get the lemon bar squares
out of the pan. And then we’re gonna cut some triangles. I’m gonna be using this little triangle
cookie cutter as a guideline to see how big my columns need to be. So I’m just placing it down here, and then
just lightly marking, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! Now that we’ve got our lemon bar squares
on the cutting board, you’re gonna take your triangle cookie cutter again, and I’m
putting it on top, and then just pressing it down a little bit so that it will
leave a little bit of an impression into the lemon bar, so I can cut even triangles. Then I’m gonna take a big cutting knife,
something that is very sharp, and just cut them out. Now that we have got our lemon bar squares
all cut out, I positioned them to look like a Triforce! So you could just serve them
like this, at a party or a get-together. But, lemon bar recipes are a little bit tart,
because of the lemons, and what compliments it really well is a little bit
of sugar on top. A little bit of sweet to balance it out. So, I’m going the extra step and I’m going
to take these little guys, I cut out little triangles, just with a piece of paper. And I’m just going to put them in the center
of each lemon bar. And now you’re just going to take some confectioners
sugar, it’s also called powder sugar. And, we’re gonna sprinkle
a little bit on the top. You can use any sifter you’d like, but I’m
just gonna use a small one, because it’s a little bit easier to control. Bring it over here, and I’m just gonna give
it a tap. Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap. Now, once you’ve got the sugar on, you’re
going to carefully take off the little paper triangle. Ta-da! Here are our Triforce Lemon Bars, thanks you
