Lemon Bars

After reading about Meyer lemons from lots of blogs. I went to the store and bought some lemons and made two different recipes from my moms recipe box. The lemon cake below and this recipe of lemon bars.
This recipe reminds me of a pie crust on the bottom, with lemon curd on top, sprinkled with powered sugar. Very creative, little cookie pies!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup powered sugar
1 cup butter
Mix these together (could just pulse in a food processor until crumbly, no longer, you don't want it to form a ball.) Press this mixture into a jelly roll pan (15x10").
Bake for 25 minutes at 325 degrees. Do not brown.

4 eggs beaten well
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
6 tablespoons lemon juice
Beat these ingredients together. Pour over hot crust. Bake another 25 minutes at 325 degrees. Do not brown.
After baking sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Cut while warm. (This is something I forgot to do and was harder to cut.)

  1. Couple things: I absolutely love your old recipes cards (look very much like my grandmother's)!

    And secondly, I have to say, these look like the perfect lemon bars. I like lemon bars a lot, but often times, I find the are too thick for me, but these look absolutely perfect!!

  2. Hi! I'm having a linky party called A Themed Baker's Sunday where this week's theme is cheesecake! I'd love for you to join and link up! If you don't have a cheesecake recipe, I'd love for you to come back for this next weeks theme, which is tomorrow, and it's cakes and cake pops!
