Marline is one of the nicest neighbors you could possibly want… she has a crazy amazing craft room too (basically an entire 2nd floor above her garage!). And today is her BIRTHDAY! I’ll be filling up the pan with the Campbell/Trueba Family Lemony Bites (recipe below).
This is also my first attempt at etching on a colored dish, and I like the results very much!
It is so much easier if you make a double batch of glaze so dipping goes more smoothly. Make sure you put wax paper down on counter before you dip and place on racks to dry…lemon juice in glaze can eat at your granite countertops.
Use mini muffin pans….spray really well with Pam..can’t use papers to line pan.
Dip right away…when they cool they don’t glaze as well.
When covered well they last a good week. I think they’re better the second day anyway.
1 yellow cake mix
1 – 3 1/2 oz package instant lemon pudding
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix all together with mixer. Fill mini muffin pans 1/2 full….any fuller and they overflow and don’t look so great. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Makes approx. 3 dozen.
4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons
3 T. vegetable oil
3 T. water
Mix everything together in large non-reactive bowl. You want one not to shallow, but big enough to dip lemon bites in easily.
When bites are done baking, remove them from pan immediately and dip in glaze as warm as you can handle. Place on rack to dry. I set them in glaze, push down with slotted spoon and then lift out. You will have a lot of glaze on wax paper.
When I make a double batch, I have been known to scoop up the glaze off the paper and use again.
