I love this lemon bar recipe! Tangy, sweet, and delicious. I actually have a hard time not eating it right out of the oven! My favorite part is when its warm. I would say most prefer them cold though. I topped it with strawberries to add another flavor. You could also use raspberries or have it plain! Your choice :)
2 sticks of butter, at room temperature
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. of flour
1/8 tsp salt
6 eggs, room temperature
2 c. sugar
2 tbsp grated lemon zest
1 c. lemon juice (around 3 lemons)
1 c. flour
powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven 350 degrees
For the crust cream butter and sugar until well combined. Add flour and salt until just mixed. Flatten down in pan building up sides half inch. ( I used a springform pan) Bake crust until lightly golden.
For the filling whisk ingredients together. Pour over crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Or until just set.
I take mine out a little earlier and let set up in the fridge for a few hours.
(Do not over bake! Filling will become gummy.)
