Directions:

1

Mix biscuits with coconut oil and honey, then press into the form of 32 x 23 cm (12 19/23 x 9 1/16 in) using the cup with a flat bottom

2

If the bisquit base is not firm, bake for 10-15 min. in an oven preheated to 150 oC (302 oF), to harden the layer

3

Combine cottage cheese, yogurt, vanilla, sugar and then stir in boiled agar (10 g) in the lavender tea (550-600 ml)

4

Pour the agar mixture into the form with biscuits, it will solidify in a few minutes, then store the form in a refrigerator, work quickly because agar solidifies fast, the height of curd cheese layer should be around 2 - 2.5 cm (0 .63 / 64 in)

5

Meanwhile make the jelly top layer: dissolve 3 g agar in 400 ml of lavender tea, let stand for a few minutes to swell it and then boil over low heat for a few minutes, add syrup, wait until it cools down a bit (but does not harden) and pour over the solidified cheese layer in the form, allow solidify in the refrigerator for an hour covered with the foil or preferably overnight

6

Cut into slices (12 large squares, or 24 smaller rectangles)

7

Garnish with small sprigs of lavender

Cooks' note:
Note: If agar solidifies during the work, melt it again by boiling; agar jelly layer gradually thinners, so that do not store the bars for longer

Classic lemon bars are made by pressing extra buttery sweet dough into a baking dish, baking it, and, after cooling, spreading lemon curd over it. Most lemon curd is made with whole butter - regular butter thats just added as is. This recipe uses brown butterfor a more pronounced butter flavor and a stiffer curd, but whole butter works fine, too.
