These bars never stay around long, as soon as I get them cut they disappear! The lemon flavor is not that intense, but if you would like it to be, add about a tablespoon of lemon zest to the filling mixture before pouring on top of baked crust. Then bake as directed.

How to Make Super easy Lemon bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Perheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan. (non stick spray works great)
  2. Combine the flour, confectioner's sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter to make it a crumbly mixture. Press the mixture in the prepared pan, ( you may need to dust your hands with flour or confectioner's sugar to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers) and bake the crust for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix up the filling: Mix the flour and sugar together in a large bowl, then add the eggs and lemon juice and zest (if desired). Stir with a whisk until well combined. Pour this over the crust (when it comes out of the oven) and return it to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  4. Let cool and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and then cut into bars, enjoy!
