Lemon Bars

Prep time:   |  Cook time: 20 min  |  Total: 20 minutes



2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup butter (2 sticks), melted]

1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups sugar

4 eggs, slightly beaten

5 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, powdered sugar and melted butter. Use a fork to combine gently until mixed. Using your fingers, press dough into the bottom of your prepared pan.
  3. Bake until the edges are just getting golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  4. Next, in a mixer, mix the eggs, sugar and lemon juice until well mixed. About 2 minutes.
  5. When the crust is done, pour lemon mixture over the hot crust. Bake again for about 15-20 minutes or until the middle is set but still slightly jiggly.
  6. Remove from the oven, let cool completely and then dust the top with more powdered sugar.
  7. Make sure these are completely cool, or refrigerate before cutting. Makes life much easier!
