    Hi Gazz... Here is a step by step guide for you to follow as requested. :D

    Turn kettle on and boil water or use VERY hot water from tap

    Cut a lemon bar in half. Save one half for something else.
    Make 5 cuts lengthwise
    Make 5 cuts crosswise.
    Seperate chunks as they will stick together.

    Put 1 pack Vanilla into a ramekin. (small dish - about 4 inches diameter)
    Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon St. Clements.
    Stir in 4 Dessert spoons (or 1 Tlsp measuring spoon) hot water.
    Mix quickly to remove most lumps.
    Stir in lemon bar bits. Move them about so not all clumped together.

    Cook 1 minute, 40 seconds, on high in 800W microwave. (Adjust time if a different wattage machine)

    Loosen edges with knife and turn out too cool a wee bit.


    =======

    Icing: (optional)

    1/2 pack vanilla
    1/4-1/2 teaspoon St. Clements
    2 Dessert spoons hot water.

    Mix as smooth as possible. Let it sit for a few moments to thicken.

    Then spread over cake.

    Enjoy.

    I like the St Clements a little strong, makes it more citrusy/lemony - but do to taste. If you have a sweet tooth, dissolve a couple sweetner tabs in the hot water first.

    ==================================

    with remainig hald pack you can make the same thing but more like a cookie - just be careful it doesn;t burn - the lemon bits can over cook...

    1/2 pack vanilla
    1/4-1/3 tsp St, Clements
    Cut up remainder of bar
    Mix pack and about 2 and 1/2 dessert spoons hot water - mix well.
    Will be thinner then cake batter.
    Stir in lemon bar.

    Cook 1 min 40 seconds again. turn out,and turn upside down. let it cool slighlty, the lemon bits will get crunchy.

    Hope that is straight dorward enough!!! :D

    Hope you like it!!! You may need to play around with the quantitites to suit the way your microwave works. :)

    The "cookie" one is better slightly warm....and I tend to prefer them both a little soft in the senter, so you might cook slighlty less at first and see how done the center is.
