Lemon Bars

Printable Recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup pwd sugar
1 cup flour

Mix the above well, and pat into an 8" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.

2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp grated lemon zest and fresh lemon juice   *Note: You will get about 1 Tbsp of zest and juice out of a good-sized lemon
1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

Combine all of the ingredients and beat well. Pour over partially baked crust and bake an additional 20-25 minutes until custard is set. Cool and frost.

1 1/2 cups pwd sugar

1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (I use lemon extract, instead)

Beat until smooth.
