Classic Lemon Bars Lemon-Bars-10-1024x708

Lemons aren’t very common in my part of Mexico. Limes, sure. But Lemons, well, when they do roll around I literally want to buy them all because I can’t be too sure when they will be back. I can’t resist anything lemon. From a Lemon Drop to Lemon Curd (eating it with a spoon) I love Lemons! I was craving strong lemon flavor with just the right touch of sweetness to it. What better than Lemon Bars. They are the perfect combo of Tart & Sweet, Soft & Crunchy. Mmmmhhhh…Just thinking about them makes me want to run to the store and bake a pan of these bad boys!

Classic Lemon Bars
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 40 mins Cook time: 45 mins Total time: 1 hour 25 mins
Yields: 24 Bars

Serve alone or with a cup of tea!
For the crust:
2 sticks butter, softened
½ cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
For the filling:
6 extra-large eggs at room temperature
3 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest from 4-6 lemons
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup flour
Confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
For the crust, cream the butter and sugar until light with an electric mixer.
Combine the flour and salt and, with the mixer on low, add to the butter until just mixed.
Gather dough into a ball on a well floured surface.
Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking sheet, building up a ½-inch edge on all sides.
After the crust has chilled for at least 30 minutes, bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned.
Let cool on a wire rack.
Leave the oven on.
For the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour.
Pour over the crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Let cool to room temperature.
When the filling is set, cut into triangles or squares and dust with confectioners sugar.
