Lemon Bars


Yield: 12

For dough
1 cup butter; at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour

For filling
4 whole eggs
2 large lemons
2 tsp lemon zest
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, and flour. Combine until dough is formed. Add more flour if dough is too sticky. In a 9×13 inch baking dish, evenly press dough in dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

2. In another mixing bowl, beat eggs, and squeeze the juice of 2 lemons (remove any seeds), add zest, and sugar by adding 1/2 cup at a time, and then flour. Whisk until lemon mixture is well combined. Pour over baked crust and bake for another 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool for at least 20 minutes. They taste the best when they are cold so I highly recommend putting the bars in the refrigerator. Cut into bars and enjoy!
