Rock On POM Squares

All week, I’ve been practicing dance moves
that can be executed in the confines
of a 12 inch x 12 concert seat.

Thus far I have perfected:

The Pursed-Lip, Eyebrows-Activated Head Bob

The Feeling-The-Groove Toe Tap
*
The Lady-Like-Mosh-Pit Jump
*
The Cell-Phone-Left-to-Right Sway
*
The Freestyle Shoulder Shrug
*
The Four-Cornered-Windmill Hand Pump
*
The I’ve-Had-Four-Kids-But-Can-Still-Be-Funky Booty Shake
*
Oh, I know it’s not much.
But it’s all I’ve got.
After all, I am human.
Not dancer.
{Though, on Saturday, I WILL dance.}

Rock On POM Squares
If you’re going to indulge, do it in style. The addition of POM juice to a {slightly} traditional lemon square recipe is sure to make you dance like no one is watching. POM juice has just enough tartness to keep this dessert from being over-the-top sweet, and adds it’s rich color to the treat, creating quite the show. Whip up a batch of these and you may just be one lace glove and a tulle hairbow away from superstardom.

CRUST:
1 c. butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. flour
Dash of Salt
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
*
Combine with a fork, then press into a 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
*

FILLING:
1 egg
4 egg whites
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. POM 100% Pomegranate juice
2 T. Lemon Juice
2 c. sugar
Zest of 1 orange & 1 lemon

With an electric mixer, beat all ingredients until fully incorporated. To amp up the red POM color, put a few drops of food coloring in, if so desired. Pour over cooled crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until center is set. Allow to cool, then sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

May your wildest wishes come true.
