Yummy Lemon Bars

Every once in awhile I start craving lemon bars. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and have LOVED it! This recipe is easy to prepare, doesn't take a lot of ingredients and always turns out great. My husband loves these bars too.

Crust:

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour

Filling:

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 cup and 2 Tbsp. lemon juice (or 2 lemons, juiced)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups sugar and 4 Tbsp. flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
  4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. When cool sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into squares.
