See these from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen – – look amazing, right!? (yep, her picture)
I told myself I could make them. I even did it all – made the lime curd, heated things, baked things, etc. But mine aren’t so pretty:
After the fact I realize what I did wrong – – I should have stirred in all the food coloring, and then reserved some aside – – I reserved first (the yellow blobs – which should have been bright green) and then when I mixed the rest and it turned light green (as it should have) and I seconded guessed and added a bunch more food coloring. Oops:
So they looked really weird, being neon green and all. And we had them at a picnic with foreign people, so I’m sure they wondered what the crazy Americans were serving. See the cookies in the bottom picture that I brought as an afterthought – they were a hit and got devoured. The cheesecake bars that I spent the afternoon making – not at all.
