Best Lemon bars

A friend gave me a recipe for a delicious lemon bar that used cake mix. I tried it but wanted something more lemony with a lighter crust. So I tried many recipes, added my own touch and have made this one for years! I will add a picture soon I promise. I’ts my middle child’s (Abdullah) favorite!This luscious bar boasts a light and tender crust, a layer of cream cheese and tart lemon yum! You will love it every time!

Ingredients

Crust

2 Cups flour

1 level Cup softened but not melted butter

1/2 level Cup Powdered Sugar

First layer

One package cream cheese, mixed with 1/2 cup sugar

Second Layer

4 eggs

2 Cups sugar

1/2 level cup flour

6 Tbs. FRESH Lemon juice

Powdered sugar for sifting on top

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Be very careful with the crust measurements, level cup is key. This crust is delicate and tasty but with even a spoon too much flour the light texture is lost. In a mixing bowl, mix crust ingredients until a nice batter is formed. Spread into an ungreased 9X13 baking pan, make sure dough is as even as possible through out pan. Put into oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Watch this because oven temperatures vary. We wan’t this to be a light golden brown around the edges and cooked. Remove from oven and cool.

Mix the cream cheese in a bowl or mixer with sugar. When crust is cool carefully spread the cream cheese over the crust using a butter knife, spread it so you don’t break the crust.

Crack 4 eggs and put them into your mixer bowl, add sugar and whip up! Let this get nice and frothy, add the lemon juice and flour, mix well. Again, make sure the flour is level, too much will ruin this light texture!

Put into oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until inside is done! You will see it doesn’t jiggle!

Dust top with Powdered sugar. Let set, cut and serve.

Trust me totally yummy!
