{Favorite Lemon Bars}

These are one of my favorite summer desserts. This recipe is so simple but so so delicious.

For the crust:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs lemon zest
  • Filling:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar and lemon zest. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
  • Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool.
