About this recipe: This is a really easy recipe that my mom made before the lemon bar "rage" was on! Thick skinned lemons work the best. I suggest using real butter and eggs, I've tried using eggbeaters -- nowhere near as good!


Makes: 32 

  • 280 g all-purpose flour
  • 60 g confectioners' sugar
  • 225 g butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 300 g white sugar
  • 120 ml lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix 2 cups of flour and confectioner's sugar together. Cut in the butter or margarine. Mix well until the dough resembles pie dough consistency. Press the dough into a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Beat together eggs, sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, lemon juice and lemon rind for at least 1 minute. Pour the mixture over the baked crust.
  5. Bake the bars another 20 minutes, or until the lemon topping has set. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar when cooled.
