Lemon Bars
These lemon bars have just the right amount of lemon ‘zing.’ These bars consist of a shortbread-like bottom and a lemon filling on top. Sift powdered sugar over the tops before serving.


3/4 cup butter, unsalted

1/2 cups brown sugar, packed

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

Lemon Filling:

4 eggs

1/3 cup flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Confectioner's sugar  

For base: Preheat oven to 350°F.

In food processor, pulse all ingredients until the mixture starts to form small clumps. Sprinkle this mixture on the bottom of 13x9" baking pan. Press down evenly with offset spatula, or even your hands. Bake 20 minutes until golden but do not overbake.

While base is baking prepare filling: Whisk eggs and sugar together and add in lemon juice and flour. Pour this over the hot crust, reduce oven temperature to 300°F, and continue baking until set for about 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving to give a nice 3-layer appearance.
