Most Lemon Bar recipes have the same base ingredients, it's all a matter of personal taste. This recipe was my grandmother's recipe. Not to tart, not to sweet. It's been a never fail, always gone recipe for me over the years.

I have also made this gluten free by using oatmeal flour in the crust and 2 tsp cornstarch in the base.

How to Make Lemon Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Crust:

  2. Base:
    Mix together all remaining ingredients until well blended. (I use fresh lemon juice because I am zesting the peel anyway)
