Lemon Bars

Lemon, lemon, LEMON!!!! Beside black licorice, it is one of the flavors my grandma and I secretly shared and devoured. Gosh I loved these things as a kid, and as an adult I found ways to make them even more scrumptious by using Florida lemons and homemade butter.

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup butter softened

Filling

  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • 2 ½ Tbsp lemon juice

  2. Mix crust ingredients.

  3. Press into ungreased 8x8 pan, building up 1/2 inch edges.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes.

  5. Beat remaining ingredients together until light and fluffy.

  6. Pour over crust.

  7. Bake for 20 more minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
