Lemon Bar Recipe

Lemon Bar Recipe


A while back I posted several tips and tricks for lemons, and a Lemon Bar recipe. Just for kicks I thought I would separate the two. So here is my absolutely delicious Lemon Bar recipe!

Lemon Bars
Serves: 20
  • Crust:
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • ½ Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • Filling:
  • 4 Lg Eggs, Beaten
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • ⅓ Cup Lemon juice (Meyer lemons are best)
  • ¼ Cup Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Fresh Lemon Rind (optional)
  • Frosting (Optional, but preferred) I often double this for a 9×13 sized pan:
  • 2 Tbs Butter
  • 1 Tbs Milk
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  1. For the crust, mix butter into the flour and sugar. You can use a pastry blender at first if that makes it more simple.
  2. Press into a 9×13 pan with your hands. The mixture should cling together.
  3. Bake crust at 350* for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  4. While crust is baking, begin making the filling.
  5. Beat together eggs, sugar and lemon juice.
  6. Stir flour and baking powder into egg mixture.
  7. Pour filling over the baked, cooled crust.
  8. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
  9. When filling is cooked, you can immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar, or cool and frost with frosting recipe (my preferred method).
  10. For frosting, mix all 4 ingredients together. Frost lemon bars when cool.
  11. Cut and serve
