Thank you MegaWoman for giving me such a tasty way to use up the yellow squash from my garden! These smelled so good baking that I had to eat mine warm. It was almost like a very soft gooey cake. I processed the squash in the food processor instead of mashing it and it worked well. I accidentally forgot to add the lemon extract but I still really liked this. I pressed some fresh berries into the top while it was still warm.
The flavor reminded me of cornbread. Can't wait to try it with the lemon next time.
We liked this - a good way to used up some more of those summer squashes. This was moist, flavorful and wonderfully lemony . . . and somewhat healthy. That makes it a keeper for me.
Honestly, I didn't like the taste or texture of this one bit, but everyone at the BBQ I brought it to raved about it and fought over taking the leftovers home!! I used coconut oil instead of butter.
I was looking for a way to use up some squash that was given to us. No one in our house likes squash, so it had to be undetectable and this fit the bill. I made a few minor adjustments, most notably substituting vanilla for the lemon (realized I didn't have any lemon when I was already in the process of making it). We all liked it, my eight year old loved it! I would have loved it with lemon, as it was, it was too bland.
I don't usually rate recipes, but since there were only two other reviews, I thought I'd pipe in. It was certainly worth making, but make sure you have the lemon!
With the exception of two friends of ours (father and son) who heard 'squash' and made faces everyone loved this yesterday. When the bars were all gone and everyone was raving, the father asked why i didn't tell him they were lemon bars... boohoo... he missed out ;) I used a food processor to mash the squash and once cooled sprinkled with some powdered sugar sifted with a touch of cinnamon for appearances and they looked and tasted great :)
I have another batch in the oven now in a 9x9 pan to try thicker bars (upon request)and am thankfully out of squash... for now.
Thank you for sharing this recipe!
