Easy Peazy Lemon Bars

I love lemon dessert.  These little bars or squares taste wonderful.  Very lemony.  I made half the recipe and used the zest of 1 lemon.  And I used 1/2 cup sugar for half recipe which is enough for us.

36-40 bars

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel (use 3 for a more lemony bar)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with parchment paper, extending paper up sides of pan; set aside.
  3. Combine the first three ingredients in a large bowl on low speed of an electric mixer until mixture is crumbly.
  4. Press mixture evenly into parchment-lined pan. This is your crust.
  5. Bake crust 20 minutes or until light brown; remove from oven.
  6. Beat together the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended; pour mixture evenly over warm baked crust.
  7. Return pan to oven and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until filling is set and bars are brown around the edges.
  8. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. Use edges of parchment lining to lift bars from pan.
  10. Place on a cutting board. Pull back edges of parchment for easy cutting; sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Cut into bars.
