The Best Lemon Bars Recipe

Ingredients: – 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened – 1/4 cup powdered sugar – 2 large egg – 1 cup granulated sugar – 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour – 1/2 teaspoon baking powder – 1/4 teaspoon salt – Zest of 2 lemon – 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice – Powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9x9-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray.

In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, softened butter, and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. Mix until the dough forms. 

Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to form the crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden. 

While the crust is baking, prepare the lemon filling. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, baking powder, salt.

Once the crust is baked, pour the lemon filling over the hot crust. Return the baking dish to the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is set and the edges are lightly golden. 

Remove the lemon bars from the oven and allow them to cool completely in the baking dish on a wire rack. 

Once cooled, dust the top of the lemon bars with powdered sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut them into squares. Serve and enjoy these delicious lemon bars!
