Rosemary Meyer Lemon Bars
If you love lemon bars, then you'll love this sweet, tart, and savory twist on the classic dessert. Created by our friend Christina Wong of Fruit + Flower Co., this infused treat is perfect for your next gathering with friends and family, or to snack on at home. It features a Meyer lemon custard baked on top of crumbly rosemary-infused shortbread.
In this recipe, Christina used the LĒVO C to make the rosemary-infused butter. LĒVO C is LĒVO's first-ever solution for large batch infusions. Holding up to 1oz of herb and 1L of liquid, the see-through basin allows you to watch your creative infusions come to life. Similar to its predecessor, LĒVO II, LĒVO C uses a gentle heat steeping process that results in cleaner tasting infusions, without the added chlorophyll you get with other infusion solutions. The machine features a default Activate (decarb) setting and customizable time and temperature for the Infuse setting.

Rosemary Meyer Lemon Bars
Christina Wong of Fruit + Flower Co.
A sweet, tart, savory twist on a classic lemon bar. Meyer lemon custard baked on top of a crumbly rosemary infused shortbread crust.
8 large sprigs of rosemary
2 cups (452g) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup (113g) rosemary-infused butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup (30g) powdered sugar
1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp of salt
2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
1 cup (200g) cane sugar
2 tsp lemon zest
1/3 cup fresh-squeezed Meyer lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp (17g) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp of powdered sugar
Small sprigs of rosemary
LĒVO C Prep:
Pack your Jumbo Pod with rosemary sprigs.
Fill the LEVO C reservoir with melted butter
Infuse at 165-175°F for 2.5+ hours
Once complete, dispense and set aside to cool. Store in the fridge using Herb Block Trays.
Rosemary Meyer Lemon Bars:
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a square 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, cream together rosemary butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
Add flour and salt until combined.The mixture will come together from a grainy sandy texture to a cohesive cookie dough as it beats together.
Press the dough evenly onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
Put in to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden.
Start making the lemon custard mixture while the shortbread is baking. In the bowl of the stand mixer, beat together eggs, egg yolks, and sugar on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is light and frothy. Mix in Meyer lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla low speed, increasing speed slowly until well-combined. Mix in flour and baking powder until incorporated.
Remove shortbread from the oven and place on a heat proof surface. Pour the lemon custard mixture over the hot shortbread, and carefully return to the oven to bake for an additional 20 minutes until set, the top will look crackled.
Take out of the oven, cool completely, and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight to make the lemon bars easier to slice. Use a sifter to dust the tops with powdered sugar before serving.
