Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars are one of my favorite sweet treats. I like them to have a good amount of tartness and a sweet layer of powdered sugar on top. It is the clash of the tart and sweet all in one bite that I adore. My friend Anna makes the best lemon bars around and I was lucky enough to have them twice recently.

I have posted her recipe below and will be trying my hand at making these sweets soon.

Anna’s Lemon Bars

Ingredients:

Crust

1 c butter softened

1/2 c white sugar

2 c all-purpose flour

Filling

4 eggs

1 1/2 c white sugar

1/4 c plus 1 T all-purpose flour

2/3 c lemon juice

Topping

Powdered sugar for dusting

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, blend all crust ingredients together and press into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Anna used Pyrex.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

In another bowl, whisk together the sugar and flour for filling until mixed. Then whisk in eggs and lemon juice until incorporated. Pour over baked crust.

Bake for an additional 20 minutes and let completely cool. The bars will firm up as they cool.

Once completely cool, dust with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and serve.

Enjoy the tart, rich perfection these lemon bars provide.
