Easy Homemade Lemon Bars Recipe
This Easy Homemade Lemon Bars Recipe if one of my very favorites for a quick and delicious dessert that the entire family will love. They are so easy, in fact, that this is one of the first recipes that my 9 year old has started making on his own. (with a little supervision, of course!) We especially enjoy them in the spring and summer because lemon is always so refreshing and enjoyable in the warmer months!
½ cup Butter, softened
1 1/3 All Purpose Flour
¼ cup Sugar
Lemon Layer Ingredients:
¾ cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Flour
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
In a large bowl, mix together the crust ingredients to form a crumbly dough. Press into the bottom of a greased 8×8 baking dish. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
In another large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, flour and lemon juice until well combined. Add in the baking powder last and whisk together until no lumps remain.
Pour the lemon mixture over the baked crust and place it bake in the oven at 350 degrees for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until the lemon layer is set. Cool for several hours before cutting and serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Enjoy!
