Super lemony! (if that’s even a word?) These bars are sweet and tart at the same time. A perfect treat! I have made lemon bars out of a box before, never knowing how easy it was to make them from scratch. And the taste was so much better and I am happy to serve my family fresh ingredients without all the preservatives! Enjoy!
Cookware, Pots/Pants, etc. You’ll Need
Here is a list of what you’ll need to prepare this recipe:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- 1½ cups white sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 3 lemons, juiced
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and ½ cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1½ cups sugar and ¼ 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.
