2 recipes in one night! Lemon Bars *drool*

Standard

I ran across this recipe and HAD to share it! Lemon bars are one of my absolute favorite desserts for late winter/early spring. And having them during the other seasons brings me back to those cool nights. I have tried out several recipes for these tangy cookies and this is by far my favorite.

Ingredients for the crust:

1 cup butter
1 3/4 cup flour
2/3 cup confectioner’s sugar (plus more for
dusting)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 X 13 pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and confectioner’s sugar. Cut in butter until combined and crumbly. Press mixture into bottom of pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Ingredients for filling:

1 1/2 cup plain sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup lemon juice

While crust is baking, prepare topping. In a larger bowl, add sugar, flour, and baking powder. Then add slightly beaten eggs and lemon juice. Mix well and pour on top of warm baked crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When cool, dust with confectioner’s sugar and refrigerate. Cut into bars and enjoy them cold!
