Bonnie's Luscious Lemon Bars


If you are in the mood for a sweet and tangy treat try my sister's recipe for "Bonnie's Luscious Lemon Bars". They are simply wonderful. A great summer treat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with foil, then spray PAM on the foil. (This sucker is NOT going to stick!)

Crust ingredients:
2 ½ c. flour
½ c. sugar
2 sticks cold butter

Mix ingredients either with a fork (or pulse in the food processor) until crumbly but sticks together. Pour into pan and pat down on bottom and up the edges a little. (The crust is my favorite part. Buttery and yummy!)

Bake for about 30 minutes, until crust is golden. While the crust is baking, mix together filling (I use the same processor bowl).

Filling ingredients:
4 eggs
1 ½ c. sugar
1 tbs. lemon zest
6 tbs. lemon juice (fresh is best, but bottled works too)
¼ c. flour
½ tsp. baking powder

When crust is done, take out of oven and pour the filling over hot crust. Return to oven for 20 minutes until set. When cool, you can just lift the foil out of the pan for easy cutting and serving. Cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
