Food: Lemon Bars

Happy Monday! These yummy lemon bars are a fave in our house :) Also great to take to get-togethers :)
Lemon Bars
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine the flour, 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar, and butter with pastry blender. Pat dough into a crust in prepared pan.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden. While crust is baking, whisk together eggs, white sugar, flour, and lemon juice until frothy. When crust is finished, whisk lemon mixture once more and then pour over the hot crust.

Return to the preheated oven for 20 to 25 more minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust the top with confectioners' sugar. Cut into squares.


  1. Thanks for the recipe, I actually made them today, and they were yummy. Really lemony.

  2. I made these tonight too, to take to morning tea tomorrow in the park with friends n babies - if our weather clears. Thanks ! : ) (Are they meant to be kinda chewy? - I am a green baker!)
