The recipe calls for agar flakes, but I know we've all come to the agreement that the powder is easier to work with. I've never made this recipe and I want to for Valentine's Day. If I sub powder for the flakes, will it affect the recipe? I'm not super experienced working with agar. Also, the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of the flakes - how much would I substitute in powder?

1T flakes = 1t powder. Works just the same way. I use whatever I can get and the results are always good.

If this is the same lemon bar recipe in VCON, I've only used agar powder and it always works. Just use the traditional equivalent sub of powder for flakes like what torque posted above when you're making the recipe with the powder. Never had a failure there and one of my all-time favorite recipes fo sho.

Bump!

Hey, I'm making these for my WVBS next weekend. Do I still have to soak the powder, like it says to do for the flakes?

Nope, no soaking required!

Funny, I just made this recipe using the powder last night! 1 Tbs powder, no soaking - it worked perfectly and they're soooo good.

Thanks! Poopie, I saw your photos on FB and was hoping it was the same recipe, because they look fantastic!
