These Sweet & Slightly Tart Treats Are Ready In 1 Hour!
With spring in the air, I wanted to share a lemon recipe that makes me think of the sunshine! These are my favorite Lemon Bars! I’ve baked several lemon square recipes in my search for the perfect one. Some were too tart, or not lemony enough. And some were too thin and fell apart to the touch. Well, my search ended when I found this amazing recipe from Allrecipes.com! The bars are sweet, with just the right amount of lemony tartness, and they hold together very nicely…which is important for presentation. These are truly “Bake Sale” worthy! I especially love how this dessert is easy and quick…using only 7 ingredients and taking only 15 minutes to prepare! Plus, it makes a nice big batch that could last days, if you restrain yourself! Enjoy and let me know what you think!
BAKE SALE LEMON BARS
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Combine the flour, 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, and butter. Pat dough into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until slightly golden.
While the crust is baking, whisk together eggs, white sugar, flour, and lemon juice until frothy. Pour this lemon mixture over the hot crust.
Return to the preheated oven for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust the top with confectioners’ sugar. Cut into squares and enjoy!
