I recently reformatted my computer all by myself (+10 geek squad points!) and ended up using these to pay off a friend who got me Microsoft Office and a couple of clutch photo editing programs (Photoshop and Lightroom, here I come!). Thanks, Jay!
I randomly came across the recipe while perusing the interwebs and thought it sounded good. I noticed that the recipe called for a food processor to mix the dry ingredients together, as well as a dough blender to blend the butter and dry ingredients together – neither of which I had. I never needed to make a crust this way before, and had only ever used Jay’s dough blender to make guacamole (it’s REALLY great for guacamole). Not having that or the food processor didn’t stop me – I figured I could do it all by hand by… furiously stirring a fork. I got the dry ingredients taken care of just fine, but the dough blending became challenging once the butter came into play.
After making the crust for these bars with a fork, acquiring a dough blender is now at the top of my to-buy list. The fork method was tedious to say the least.
I’ll be able to actually have some pretty pictures soon using something better than Microsoft Office Picture Manager! For now, you’ll have to deal with what I got in the gallery here:
