Hi guys! Last time, I went a whole month without posting something for your sweet tooth. Well, if you know me at all, you know that I prefer sweet over boring, normal, food anyway! So, I decided it shouldn’t be too long before I brought you another yummy Tried and True treat. Although my sister, Tara, doesn’t agree, I’ve decided to add these tasty Lemon Bars to our ever growing favorite treats list (yup, she only eats chocolate-y treats and no fruity ones). These bars from Among the Young were so good though, it could make anyone a lemon bar believer.
This recipe is the perfect old fashioned Lemon Bar you remember growing up with. It’s simple, delicious, a bit tart (and a bit sweet), and perfect for Spring!!
Here is what you’ll need to make them…
- 1 c. butter (room temperature)
- ½ c. powdered sugar
- 2 c. flour
- ½ tsp salt
- 4 eggs
- 5-6 TB lemon juice
- 1¾ c. sugar
- ⅓ c. flour
- Powdered sugar
- In a bowl, mix butter, powdered sugar, flour, and salt together with a pastry cutter or spatula. Pat mixture into a greased 9x13 pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 375. Make sure to not let it get brown, keep it light!
- Meanwhile. blend eggs, lemon juice, sugar, and flour until frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour over crust.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 350
- Remove from oven and top with powdered sugar.
Adapted from Among the Young.
