Sweets – Lemon Bars

By April 21, 2015 No Comments

We are brightening up the first part of your week with the yummiest lemon bars around.  This recipe has been on the down low for some time now and I finally got my mother in law to give it up!! I know there are a lot of good lemon bars out there, but trust us when we tell you that this is the one….


The crust is a little thicker and yummy, the filling is just the right amount of tart, and the sugar on top is the perfect mix for a great bite.  You won’t be able to eat just one!


They also make for a gorgeous display.  Add some fruit around a pretty cake plate and garnish with some lemon zest and your set!


Crust Ingredients:

1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups flour

1/8 tsp kosher salt

Bake crust for 15 – 20 min, until lightly browned.  Let cool on a wire rack

Filling Ingredients:

6 extra large eggs at room temperature

3 cups granulated sugar

2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 cup flour

Whisk together and pour on baked crust. Bake 15-20 minutes until set.  Top with powdered sugar and lemon zest.


Take these to your next shindig…you’ll give yourself a repuation…
