Calamansi Streusel Bars

Everytime I come across a lemon bar it gets me thinking if I can use calamansi instead. So, for today's recipe, I substituted calamansi instead of lemon and instead of just sprinkling powdered sugar on top, I made a streusel. The final outcome looked really nice, and yes...calamansi can be used instead of lemon :)

Calamansi Streusel Bars

Butter 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar 1/4 cup
All-Purpose Flour 1 cup
Salt 1/8 tsp

Using the paddle attachment to fyour Kitchenaid mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add in flour and salt and beat until dough comes together. Pat evenly on the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Bake in a 350 degree farenheit preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Sugar 1 cup
Eggs 2 pieces
Calamansi Juice 2 tablespoons
All-purpose Flour 2 tablespoons

Beat eggs and sugar together using the paddle attachment of Kitchenaid mixer until light and fluffy. Pour in calamansi juice and continue beating, until well incorporated. Add the flour and beat for another minute. Pour filling into baked crust. Sprinkle streusel on top, pieces may sink into filling. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool before slicing, sprinkle with icing sugar

Butter 1/2 cup

Mix all ingredients by hand until lumps are formed. Be careful not to let butter become too soft.
