These lemon bars are the best ones I've had. They seem to have just the right amount of filling to crust ratio. This recipe was passed down to me from my mom, and has won it's fair share of awards. They are pretty easy to make, and have become my go to recipe for something a little more special than cookies.
1 C soft butter
dash of salt
1/2 C powdered sugar
2 C flour
2 C sugar
1/4 C flour
1/3 C lemon juice
CRUST: Combine butter, salt powdered suagar and 2 C flour. Press into a 9 X 13 pan. Bake @ 350 for 15 - 20 minutes until edges are slighty brown. Let Cool slightly.
FILLING: Beat eggs, add sugar, 1/4 C flour and lemon juice - whisk until combined and pour onto cooled crust. Bake @ 350 for 25 minutes or until set. Let cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
Note: It seems like it takes forever for the crust to brown. Sometimes I just take it out even if the edges are not brown. The crust doesn't have to be completely cooled down, but if it's too hot the egg mixture kind of starts to cook in top of the crust.
