The Best Lemon Bars
Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Total: 55 mins
Yield: 1 – 9×13 inch pan
1 cup butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups white sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 lemons, juiced
Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2 In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
Step 3 Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
Step 4 Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.
