Lemon Bars!

The next dessert I brought in was lemon bars. These were the very first ones I had ever made. I loved them! I have always been a big fan on lemon bars and I was so excited to bring them into class on Friday 1/11/13. Most of my classmates enjoyed them and left me some comments:

Less sugar
A bit dry
Make more
More lemon
Add more filling and less crust
Keep them the same

I’m always glad to hear feedback on my desserts because I want to know how to make them better. If you would like to try to make them, please do! I recommend them, unless you don’t like lemon. Here is the recipe:

Original recipe makes 1 – 9×13 inch pan


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour

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


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
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.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
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.
