Lemon Bars Recipe

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Lemon bars are one of my favorite treats ever. Not only are they easy to make, but their tangy sweet filling and perfectly crisp crust makes them fun to share as well! We usually make a double batch, since they disappear so quickly around here.

The ingredients:

(not pictured: lemon rind)

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour


2 eggs

2 Tbs. flour

1 cup sugar
2 Tbs. lemon juice

grated rind of half lemon

For crust: Cream butter, sugar and flour. Spread in an 8x8" pan and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes (or until golden). While crust is baking prepare next layer.

For filling: Beat eggs slightly and add sugar, flour, lemon juice, and rind. Mix well and pour over hot crust after it come from oven. Now bake for 15-20 minutes at 350° or until golden brown and set. Remove from oven and sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar. Cool slightly before serving. When doubled this recipe fits just perfectly into a 9x13" pan.
