lemon-lime bars

I remade the lemon bars that I made just a few posts ago. This time I cut the crust ingredients in half. I also ran out of lemons so I had to use some limes. I loved these - so did Tavio.

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest (in this case I used the juice and zest of 3 lemons and 2 limes)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix 1 cup of flour and confectioner's sugar together. Cut in the butter or margarine. Mix well until the dough resembles pie dough consistency. Press the dough into a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Beat together eggs, sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, lemon juice and lemon rind for at least 1 minute. Pour the mixture over the baked crust.
  5. Bake the bars another 20 minutes, or until the lemon topping has set. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar when cooled.
