How to cook Calamansi Bars

Have you heard of the classic American dessert bar, called Lemon Squares? Now we are going to prepare the Filipino version of lemon squares, which is the Calamansi Bars Recipe.

Calamansi is a Philippine lime also called as Calamondin which is a small citrus fruit with dark green rind and yellow flesh inside. Calamansi is available year-round since it grows abundantly here in the Philippines and for that reason sometimes it just sits there in the kitchen for a long time which frequently results of getting rot. So to avoid such a thing, preparing this Calamansi Bars Recipe is a great idea.

These Calamansi Bars are quite addictive that you will absolutely ask for more. While cooking this, you will smell the scent of calamansi floating across the room that is so inviting. It has a combination of sweet and tangy flavors with a buttery cookie base and then sprinkled with powdered sugar on top which tastes so heavenly in every bite.

    These look heavenly but I am hungry now. I would just sub gluten free flour for regular flour and I’m good.

    I am so excited about this sweet tender desert! We have a wonderful Asian market that I will be visiting this week to get Calamansi to make this with. They look so lovely in the picture. I pinned this so I would not loose it and filed it on my desert board.
