It should be a crime to use lemons for anything but Lemondrop martinis. Okay, maybe that’s a little drastic. If you do end up having tons of lemons you aren’t sure what to do with them, here is a great, easy, summer recipe.
These lemon bars are a fabulous combination of tart and sweet. They have the traditional smooth insides with a flakey texture from the crust. Lemon bars are one of my favorite desserts. With looking at how easy they are to whip up, they will be one of yours too.
2 c flour
½ c plus 2 tbsp, confectioner’s sugar, divided
1 c butter
2 c sugar
1/3 c fresh lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350o F. Mix flour and ½ c confectioner’s sugar in a bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until crumbly.
- Pat mixture gently into a 9×13-inch baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.
- Beat eggs, sugar and lemon juice in bowl until smooth. Pour over crust.
- Bake for 20 minutes longer or until set. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with remaining confectioner’s sugar. Cut into bars.
