Best Lemon Bars

Best Lemon Bars

I love lemon bars! And I remember helping my family make lemon bars every so often when I was young. When I came across this lemon bar recipe, I knew I had to try it out. These lemon bars are truly the Best Lemon Bars I’ve tasted. I really think the secret to making them taste so good is using real juiced lemons.

  2. In another bowl, mix 1½ cups sugar and ¼ cup flour. And then whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust. Bake for an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

    So I made these Lemon Bars yesterday and they are delicious! It is perfect because it doesn’t have the yuck jello like stuff on top. Other recipes have a perfect line down the middle dividing the crust from the lemon curd top, but this recipe kind of blends the crust and the lemon. At our local farmers market they had bars very identical to these and they were sold out pretty quick! I am 12 and I LOVE to bake. These were very easy to make. Although we only had meyer lemons so I zested them and put it in to add some bitterness. I did half white sugar and half brown sugar (Because we ran out of white). You have to cook the crust for exactly 15 minutes. You think it looks like they need more time to bake but they don’t. I would maybe add some salt to even out the sweetness. And also try some before you add powdered sugar on top because it might be too sweet for your liking. And besides, it wouldn’t hurt to “test” it ;).
