Lemon Bars

I found this in my PEOPLE magazine, a recipe by Katie Couric and they are fabulous.


Makes 24 

½ cup confectioners' sugar 

2 cups plus 6 tbsp. flour, divided 

Pinch of salt 

1 cup room-temperature butter, sliced into 8 pieces 

4 eggs 

2 cups sugar 

6 tbsp. lemon juice 

Grated rind of one lemon 

1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 13×9-in. baking pan. 

2. In a food processor, blend confectioners' sugar, 2 cups flour and salt. Add butter and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Press into pan and bake for 20 minutes. 

3. Meanwhile, beat eggs, 2 cups sugar, 6 tbsp. flour and lemon juice until well combined. Stir in lemon rind. Pour on top of hot crust and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Cool completely, then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Cut into squares. Print Friendly and PDF Pin It
