When our children were young, seems as though I was making lemon bars every weekend (surprisingly the kids liked them). We love this dessert!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
2 sticks butter, at room temperature; plus more for greasing
2 cups granulated sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9″x13″x2″ pan.
Make the crust by combining the flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter to make a crumbly mixture. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. You may need to dip your fingers into a little flour or confectioners’ sugar to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers. Bane for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, to make the filling, mix the eggs, granulated sugar, flour, and lemon juice. Pour this over the baked crust and bake for 25 minutes longer. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired, when the bars are done.
