Lemon Bars

Based on Slate’s recipe. We frequently substitute in Meyer lemons for regular ones, which is amazing.

For the crust:

  • Mix together and blend into a coarse meal
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for garnish
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • Press into a 9-inch greased pan.
  • Bake at 350F until edges are brown (~20 minutes)

For the filling:

  • Whisk until smooth
    • 6 large eggs
    • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • Stir in until just combined
    • 1 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons grated lemon zest
  • Fold in
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Pour filing into baked crust and bake until firm at 315F (~45 minutes).
