Lemony lemon bars. Something I heard for the first time 2 months back. It was a challenge from baking partners for the month of June that I’d missed. I have tried these lemon bars with 3 different recipes and preferred the recipe from joy of baking best. It had a more lemony tinge to it that I really liked. I had made another batch using condensed milk which was also nice. Thank u Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen and Suja of Kitchen Corner Try It for the wonderful challenge.
Now let’s get making these super lemony lemon bars
FOR THE CRUST:
1/2 cup room temp. unsalted butter,
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoons grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
In a clean bowl mix the flour, salt , powdered sugar and give a good whisk to combine the dry ingredients well.
Take the room temp butter and mix it well with the flour to reassemble bread crumbs.
Take a square 8′ baking dish and press the crumbs evenly in the dish to form the base. Take fork and make holes through out the base.
Bake for 15 – 20 mins or until the corners of the crust just starts to brown. Take it out of the oven.
Mean while for the fillings, whisk sugar , eggs , flour , Lemon juice and zest and whisk it well till all are well combined and pour over the hot crust and bake for another 20 mins or till the filling has set.
Let it cool in a wire rack. Generously sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. Cut it into small pieces and enjoy.
