Lemon Bars

So you want to learn how to make lemon bars? Or maybe you already know but need a new recipe. You have come to the right place! This recipe came to me through a family member a few years back and I have not let go of it ever since! Lemons are my favorite, they are zesty, sour, and go well with just about anything from tea to soup! I even eat lemons by themselves with salt. I am getting off topic. Lemon bars. They are great. Perfect for summer or a midnight snack.  This recipe is in two parts. You make the crust first and then the filling. If you like more zesty than sweet then I suggest that you alter the measurements to your liking.

2 C Flour

Add butter in, mix until crumbs form.

Press evenly into pan, recommended 9×13. Bake until golden brown (18-22 minutes).

Filling:

Combine flour and sugar.

Add eggs, lemon juice and zest to flour mixture

Pour over golden brown crust and bake for 18-20 minutes.

Allow the lemon bars to cool down before adding the powdered sugar on top. These can be served warm or cold. I prefer them a little warm but that is my preference.
