Mojito Bars are Lemon Bars for Grown Ups

Mojito Bars
In an act of absolute insanity, I gave away almost of all of my mojito bars to my neighbor.  I had played with recipe development and photography for so long that I didn’t want to see the bars for another second (Does anyone else get that way after baking for a long time?).  By the next morning, I was no longer tired of looking at the mojito bars.  In fact, I craved one.  At first bite, I realized my mistake.  My mojito bars were crazy good, like lemon bars for grown ups  – I wanted every single one of them back!

Sadly, of the very few mojito bars that I hadn’t given away, I had to part with another one.  My mother-in-law was watching my son and it only seemed sporting to give her some dessert.  She said these mojito bars with their lime, mint, and rum filling and their crisp buttery crust made her top five list of everything that I have ever baked.

When frozen, my mojito bars taste like an icy drink in dessert format.  The next time I make these (and there will definitely be a next time), I will throw the whole batch in the freezer immediately instead of giving them away.  I’ll eat them straight from the freezer whenever I want a special treat!
