First let me say that I LOVE lemon bars. For a chocolate and caramel lover, that is saying something. My go-to recipe is this one that I adapted from one of my favorite Betty Crocker cookbooks. It goes to show that the good, old standards like this little sweetie stand the test of time. It is totally no frills and for that reason it is perfect.

  • 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup
    butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup
    powdered sugar
  • eggs
  • 1 cup
    granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • 2 tablespoons
    lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, butter, and powdered sugar in an electric mixer until the dough starts to come together. Press into
    an ungreased 8 x 8 inch pan, building up an edge. Bake 20 minutes, until light brown.
  2. Wipe out bowl. Beat remaining ingredients for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust. Bake another 25 minutes longer, or just until no imprint remains when touched lightly in center. Allow to cool completely, then sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into squares.
