Canada Day Bars

Happy Canada Day!! Although I'm back in the states I figured I'd write about a delicious canadian treat on this day to celebrate!

John and I met up with my friend Jeanne the last night we were in town and had a wonderful time walking around and eating desserts! Our first stop was to a little pastry shop in ByWard Market. a yummmmm


OK I need help remembering what this bar is called... it begins with a N and it's layers of tastiness :D chocolate, lemon curd, nuts, delicious. We also got a maple cake (although a little lacking in the maple flavor department) and a chocolate layered cake of some sort that was amazing!! John also got a mini gingerbread man... but ate it before we got a picture :D


We also made an appearance at Pure Gelato, the amaretto and cinnamon flavors were AMAZING!!! yum yum yum!!!

Are you thinking of Nanaimo Bars? But those don't have a lemon curd layer, they have a kind of custard cream layer, I guess.

Still really delcious, and Canadian! Here's the "official" recipe from the city of Nanaimo: http://www.nanaimo.ca/EN/main/visitors/NanaimoBars.html

ooo that's the name thank you so much!! Hmmm well it was a custardy creamy layer but it had a lemon flavor to it... but now that you say it, it was more creamy than curdy! thanks!!

How appropriate for you to celebrate Canada Day since you just got back from there. The treats look delicious!

Oh yes, nanaimos! We should try making those. They sound so good.

I have never tried gelato, but it's on my list of to-do's!
