Main Ingredients

1 cup butter softened

1/2 cup white sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 lemons juiced

2 zest from lemons


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2In a medium sized bowl mix together, preferably with a hand or stand mixer, your softened butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and flour until the mixture starts to form a "crumb" texture.

3Scoop that mixture into a square baking dish, press down to compact the dough, and form a crust. (Poke small holes into the crust with a fork to prevent the dough from forming large bubbles.)

4Bake the dough in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

5Meanwhile, mix your remaining white sugar, flour, and lemon zest together.

6Next, beat in your eggs and lemon juice. This mixture will form the lemon custard.

7Take out your pre-baked dough from the oven and carefully pour your lemon custard mix on top.

8Now, you should have two clearly defined layers to your lemon bar, the crust and the lemon custard. To finish off this dessert, allow the custard time to cook.

9Place your baking pan back into the preheated oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes. The bars will firm up as they cool.

10To garnish, dust a light layer of confectioners sugar on top of individual servings.
