Lori's Lemon Bars

I don't think words can adequately describe my love for lemon bars.  When I went to Utah in March my aunt made the most delicious lemon bars I have had in recent memory.  Adam (who you might remember doesn't like sweets) nearly ate an entire pan himself.  Of course I asked for her recipe, and it was one of the desserts we had for mother's day.

  • 1 stick butter (4 oz) softened
  • dash salt
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1 C flour
  • 3 T lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 C sugar
  • 3 T flour
  • Powdered sugar (for sprinkling)
  • Baker's spray
  • 8x8 pan
  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • Mixer
  • Spatula
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray pan with baker's spray.
  3. Mix first four ingredients together, then press into pan.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Mix together remaining ingredients.
  6. Pour over baked crust.
  7. Bake another 25 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Wait until they cool completely before cutting.
