Ooey Gooey Lemon Bars Recipe

I make these every year and never get tired of them.  There is just something about the yummy flavors of buttery shortbread and tangy lemon filling that make them irresistible.  You can always recognize lemon bars because of the pretty snow white confectioners sugar on top, which makes them a pretty dessert to set on your table, as well as an addictive one!

  • Shortbread Crust
  • Beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth. Add flour and salt and beat until the dough just starts to come together. Press onto the bottom of pan using the bottom of cup. Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes, or just until lightly brown around the edges. Place on a wire rack to cool while you make the filling.
  • Lemon Filling

  • To serve

Notes

Best when eaten the same day they are made. Bake in a 8x8 pan.
