With the tanginess of lemons and a sweet angel-dusting of powdered sugar, these must-bake lemon bars take your dessert from good to best!
January 26, 2011
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cups granulated sugar
teaspoons grated lemon peel
cup fresh lemon juice
tablespoons powdered sugar
Heat oven to 350°F.
In medium bowl mix butter, 2 cups of the flour and 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar. Press into the bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until center is set and edges just begin to brown.
In medium bowl, mix remaining 1/4 cup flour and remaining 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar with whisk. Add eggs, lemon peel and lemon juice; stir with whisk until well combined. Pour over partially baked crust.
Bake 18 to 22 minutes longer or until center is set and edges are golden brown. The bars will firm up as they cool. Cool 1 hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
Add some pizzazz to the bars with stencils or strips of parchment paper. Place stencils on bars, sift powdered sugar over the stencil and then carefully lift the stencil from the bars.
