Buttery Lemon Bars

The girls I work with love my cooking.
They love it so much, that they even put in request.
I was sitting in the employee lounge, last week,
 and one of the girls looked at me and said,
“You know, you should make something for us with lemon in it.”
My first reaction, of course, was to laugh at her,
but then I asked, “Why lemon?”
Her response made me feel bad for her,
 so today’s recipe is for her!
You know who you are!! Love ya E!
You see, her husband doesn’t like anything lemony.
 Crazy, right!
I love anything lemon,
Sugar Scrubs to
Lemons have such a fresh smell and a wonderful light taste to them.
Lemons scream Sunshine and Happiness!
I don’t know about you,
 but on a Monday, I need both of those!So, here’s to a Monday full of Sunshine, Happiness, and a yummy dessert!


Buttery Lemon Bars

Here is what you will need:
1 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
2 1/3 cups All-Purpose Flour
4 Eggs
2 cups White Sugar
1 teaspoon fresh Lemon Peel, grated
6 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Powdered Sugar

Beat butter and powdered sugar until creamy.

Beat in 2 cups of the flour.

Spread mixture evenly on the bottom of a well greased 9×13 baking dish.

I’m a hands on girl. I just use my fingers to squish it around the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
While that is baking, beat eggs until light.
Gradually add in the white sugar, beating until mixture is thick and lemon colored.
Add lemon peel, lemon juice, remaining 1/3 cup flour, and baking powder.
Beat until smooth and well combined.

Pour lemon mixture over baked crust and

return to oven for 15 to 20 minutes,
or until top is a pale golden color.
Lightly sprinkle the bars with powdered sugar and allow to cool.


I hope everyone has a great week!
