Lemon Bars!!!

These bars scream springtime! I found this recipe years ago in a magazine and knew that it was a keeper the first time I made them! Hope you enjoy them too!

Always good to start with lemons~

Whisking up the eggs~

Adding sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice~

Lemony goodness on a shortbread crust~


Lemon Bars
2 1/4 Cup Flour
1/2 C. Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Butter, softened
4 Large Eggs
2 Cups Sugar
1/3 C. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Lemon Zest
1/2 tsp. baking powder
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 pan with tin foil and grease lightly. Combine 2 CUPS flour and powdered sugar. Using a pastry blender or fork, add butter and mix until the flour/sugar mixture looks crumbly. Firmly press into a 9x13 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes; until lightly browned. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Add sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk again. Combine the remaining 1/4 C. flour and baking powder. Whisk into the egg mixture. Pour over crust and return to oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars and sprinkle with additional powdered sugar if desired.
Happy Eating!
