Who likes lemon? I do!!! I love lemon-flavored goodies. You name it with lemon, I probably like it. I've always loved the sour flavor, even since I was little. My mom has the best lemon bar recipe ever. Plus, you can make it gluten-free - just substitute gluten-free flour! Easy peasy. And these taste SUPER YUMMY!
For the cookie base:
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour (or substitute w/gluten free all-purpose flour)
For the lemon filling:
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour (or substitute w/gluten free all-purpose flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons lemon juice (awesome with fresh-squeezed!)
lemon zest (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix butter, powdered sugar & flour until well blended. Press mixture into bottom of 9x13 glass baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
Sift together the sugar, flour and baking powder in large mixing bowl. Add eggs and lemon juice. Beat until well blended. Pour mixture over the cookie crust. You can add your optional lemon zest by sprinkling on top. Bake for 25 minutes.
Allow bars to cool, then dust with powdered sugar and a little bit more lemon zest. Cut into squares and enjoy!
