Try It Out Thursday: Grapefruit Bars

Try It Out Thursday is dedicated to recipes, products or ideas that I find on Pinterest or receive in my e-mail. I tend to “pin” and save a lot of recipes and craft ideas and never try them so I decided that this will help me wade through the many pins and e-mails that I have.

I can’t eat grapefruit because it does something to my high blood pressure medication but that doesn’t mean that I don’t absolutely love them! Sometimes I’ll sneak some into my diet but just a little.

The other day my pastor brought some grapefruits from his tree into the office and told us to take as many as we wanted. They are beautiful, sweet Ruby Red grapefruits. I made sure to take some because the second that I saw them I knew what I wanted to make.


Earlier in the week I pinned a recipe for “Grapefruit Bars”.  I got it from Leah at Freutcake. I also fell very much in love with her blog!

I followed the recipe as is and it gets 10 thumbs up from me!

The shortbread crust alone on this is ABSOLUTELY delicious and I plan on using it for other things.



And here is what it looked like as I went along.






These bars were so good and I will make them again!

I also had an epic fail with some candied grapefruit peels this same evening.


I followed the directions on the recipe and the peels looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL but they were still bitter when we tried to eat them. So sad, oh well, I shall try again until I get it right!

Try out the Grapefruit Bars, you won’t be disappointed!
