Lemon Bars

Our pastor loves lemon bars. So I made a batch of these to share with him and a few samples for us. YUMMY!! 9x9 pan lined with tinfoil to get them out easier.

Bake Sale Lemon bars



  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. To make crust: Mix together the butter, 1 1/3 cups flour and 1/4 cup sugar with a fork until crumbly. Press into an 8 inch square pan and bake for 20 minutes. Crust will look white. Do not brown!
  3. Combine the eggs, 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until well mixed. Pour over pre-baked crust.
  4. Return to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let bars cool before cutting.
