Servings: 16 bars
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 45 min
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
pinch of salt
2 sticks butter, at room temperature, plus more for greasing
2 cups granulated sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 9x13x2-inch pan.
Make the crust by combining flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter to make a crumbly mixture. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. You may need to dip your fingers into a little flour or confectioners’ sugar to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, to make the filling, mix the eggs, granulated sugar, flour, and lemon juice. Pour this over the baked crust and bake for 25 minutes longer. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired, when the bars are done.
