Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

Crust 

  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

 Filling

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup lemon juice (less if desiring milder lemon taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 11×7 inch pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together 1 cup flour and confectioners’ sugar. Blend in the melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden.
  4. In the same mixing bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.
  5. Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers
