So this is kind of cool: I’m guest posting today over at Better Homes and Gardens! I adapted one of their lemon bar recipes to create grapefruit bars and I think you’re going to like them.

I love cooking and baking with all citrus fruits, but I’ve been on a serious grapefruit kick recently. I eat them for breakfast or a mid-day snack. I add them to salads. A few weeks ago I even baked a grapefruit pie. I can’t say I’ve ever tried a citrus fruit that I didn’t love, but to me there’s something especially wonderful and unique about grapefruit. I love assertive flavors and grapefruit packs an extra level of sweetness that’s counterbalanced by just the right amount of bitterness.

These grapefruit bars are incredibly easy to make. The bottom crust layer is a rich, flaky shortbread. The top layer is delicate and sweet with just the right amount of grapefruit flavor. Sound good? Head over to Better Homes and Gardens to get my recipe for grapefruit bars!
