The Best Lemon Bars from All Recipes

  We tried this version of the classic lemon bars today and were glad we did. The lemon flavor was enhanced by the lemon zest. Make Sure to use Large lemons to get a Tart lemony flavor.....Enjoy.
The  Best Lemon Bars from All Recipes
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 lemons, juiced ( I used to large lemons and added the zest of 1 of them )
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/12 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice and zest. Pour over the baked crust.
  4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool.
