Recipe Notes

  • Fresh is always best, especially in lemon desserts, so squeeze fresh lemon juice.
  • Garnish the lemon bars with powdered sugar, fresh berries and/or lemon zest.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the flour, butter and powdered sugar until it is fully combined. Press into the bottom of a square baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 minutes.
  2. To make the filling, beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the sugar, flour, baking powder, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk together well. Pour the mixture over the crust. Bake another 25 minutes or until golden. Cool. Dust with powdered sugar and then cut into bars.
