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


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


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


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)


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


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


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.
