Seems it’s the season for lemons. I have recently been making things that involve freshly squeezed lemon juice. I find it adds a lot of flavor and tastes delicious in all sorts of things. First the ice tea and now in the lemon bars. Perhaps lemon chicken next? We shall see! For now, I will stick to my sweet tooth! Here is a super simple recipe that takes a few minutes to put together and will have people coming back for more:
Step 1: Heat oven to 350 F
Step 2: In medium bowl, mix flour, butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar with spoon. Press in ungreased 8-inch or 9-inch square pan, building up 1/2-inch edges. Bake crust for 20 minutes; remove from oven.
Step 3: In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients except additional powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. (I like to add 1/2 cup of flaked coconut to the egg mixture, it tastes great!) Pour over hot crust.
