Lemon Bars

These lemon bars are a great way to sweeten up your summer.  I was making these this weekend and suprisingly, it wasn’t that hard.  The recipe is pretty simple and the end result was fantastic. 



  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 lemons, juiced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/12 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
  4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.
  5. Dust with powdered sugar to make them extra sweet (thats the way i like it 🙂

These lemon bars were delicious but I added powder sugar on top, because the original recipe was not sweet enough.  I think that they came out great, but they were a little messy.  I shared them with my stepsister and her friend and they thought they were awesome!  This was a recipe that I did just for fun 🙂
