When it comes to desserts, even the healthiest of us can be appealed by something small and something with a tarty citrus flare to it, for me that is lemon bars, a tasty treat that I always enjoy in the middle of the winter or the dead of summer and they are completely easy to make, even if your baking skills aren’t what you would like them to be!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup white cane sugar
- 2 cups all purpose non bleached sifted flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup white cane sugar
- 1/4 cup all purpose non bleached sifted flour
- 2 juiced lemons ( roughly 1 cup )
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl, mix the butter, two cups of flour and 1/2 cup of sugar together until it’s crumbly and dry to which you will then press into the bottom of an 8X8 or 9X13 pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until it is firm and golden brown.
In a larger bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, eggs and lemon juice until there are no longer any lumps and runny, then you will pour over the baked crust and bake for 20 minutes to 25 minutes or until the top begins to brown slightly. Once the top begins to brown slightly, remove from the oven, let them cool and sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and enjoy!
