Today's FBFF prompt is to share the recipe for one of my favorite dishes. Since I'm still learning how to cook, I don't have a lot of amazing recipes to share yet. However, I do want to try making homemade lemon bars this summer. Lemon bars are one of my favorite desserts and this recipe I found from Betty Crocker seems simple enough.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel, if desired
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
Step 1: Heat Oven to 350 Degrees F.
Step 2: Mix flour, butter, and powdered sugar. Press in ungreased square pan (8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches), building up 1/2 inch edges.
Step 3: Bake crust 20 minutes.
Step 4: Beat granulated sugar, lemon peel, lemon juice, baking powder, salt, and eggs with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust.
Step 5: Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. Cool; dust with powdered sugar. Cut into about 1 1/2 inch squares.
Step 6: Enjoy!
