Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars? Lemon Bars? Did someone mention that little morsel of buttery citrusy goodness? We make these at least once a week and they are probably our most requested dessert on our evening dessert buffet. We’ve even been known to make them as a first anniversary gift for returning guests and send them at Valentine’s Day to adoring fans (of the Lemon Bars!)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
1 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
Lightly spray a 9 inch baking pan with pan coating. In a small bowl, blend butter, flour and confectioners sugar. Press into the greased pan.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, combine the filling ingredients. Pour over the baked crust and bake for 25 minutes. Cool completely and cut into bars.
(There is some discussion as to whether you wait for the crust to cool before adding the filling. We don’t wait—we pour the filling right into the hot crust).
