Description

I’m so picky about good lemon bars, and this recipe is by far the best I’ve ever tried. They are light and lemony and perfect in every way.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 sticks Cold Butter
  • _____
  • FOR THE LEMON FILLING:
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Lemons, Zested And Juiced
  • ⅓ cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

Heat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.

For the crust: Add 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and butter into a mixing bowl. Cut the mixture together with a pastry cutter until well blended. Press into the prepared pan and cook for 25 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

While the crust is cooking, make the lemon layer. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and salt with a fork. Mix in the remaining flour, granulated sugar, lemon zest and juice. Pour over the hot crust and bake for another 25 minutes.

Cool completely and dust with the remaining 1/3 cup of powdered sugar using a sifter. Cut into bars and enjoy!

These can be made a day before serving.

These look sooo good! And not a lot of ingredients either which is great. The texture looks firm enough so they don’t break apart when holding them…I’ll be making these soon!
