Lemon Bar Recipe

This recipe comes from Company's Coming Pint Size Books by Jean Pare. The only ingredient I don't use is lemon zest.

When baking the crust before putting the filling on, make sure to only bake until the crust is a very light brown.

These are greats squares or bars for any occasion, but make a great addition to your Christmas Baking.

Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • • 2 c. white flour
  • • 3/4 c. icing sugar
  • • 1 c. butter or margarine, softened
  • Topping::
  • • 4 large eggs
  • • 5 tbsp. lemon juice
  • • 1/4 c. flour
  • • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • • 1 tsp. baking powder

Instructions

  1. Crust: Mix flour, icing sugar and margarine together until crumbly and well mixed. Press firmly into a 9"X 13" greased baking pan. Bake in 350º F oven for approx. 18 - 20 min, or until edges start to brown lightly.
  2. Topping: Beat eggs with an electric mixer until frothy. Add lemon juice and beat well.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in another bowl and stir to blend. Add to egg mixture and beat well.
  4. Pour over pre-baked crust and return to oven for approx. 15-20 min. more. When squares are a golden brown colour, remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
  5. Sprinkle icing sugar over slightly cooled bars. When completely cooled, cut into squares.
