Lemon Bars

It is about time I've posted a lemon bar formula, wouldn't you agree? Everybody needs a better than average lemon bar formula in their formula accumulation, and this one should make the cut.

These bars are delectably tart with quite recently the perfect measure of sweet to compliment the acrid. Their strong, crisp lemon enhance is combined with an all the more smooth trace of orange to tone things down without diverting from the superstar. Both entire eggs and egg yolks are added to give structure as well as to offer a rich and smooth surface. I blended in cream to free any cruel biting lemon enhance, and the dark colored sugar replaces a portion of the conventional powdered sugar to offer the outside layer more profundity of flavor.

These bars are definitely not dull, so in the event that you are searching for a crisp, energizing treat formula, don't cruise this one by. Give yourself a trace of summer to light up these overcast winter days by making some of these invigorating and wanton lemon bars. You'll be happy you did once they are dissolving without end in your mouth. Appreciate!

Lemon Bars



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar , plus more for dusting
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup butter , partially soft and diced into 3/4-inch cubes*


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh navel orange juice
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish, set aside. In a food processor (you can also just use a bowl and a whisk then a fork or your fingertips to cut in butter), pulse together flour, powdered sugar, brown sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Add diced butter and pulse until mixture begins to come together in crumbles. Press mixture into an even layer on bottom and 1/2-inch up the sides of the prepared baking dish (be sure to press together any cracks). Bake in preheated oven until lightly golden, about 20 minutes (zest lemons then juice lemons and oranges while crust is baking and begin to prepare filling because you want to pour filling over a hot crust).
  2. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, flour and 1/8 tsp salt. Several minutes before crust is done baking, mix in lemon juice, orange juice and lemon zest, then add eggs, egg yolks and heavy cream and whisk vigorously to blend well. Pour mixture over hot crust, then reduce oven temperature to 325 and return to oven and bake until filling is just set, about 20 - 25 minutes. Allow to cool at room temperature 1 hour, then cover and chill in refrigerator about 1 1/2 - 2 hours or overnight (if resting overnight I'd recommend letting them rest at room temperature a bit before serving). Cut into squares and dust tops with powdered sugar just before serving. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
  3. *Let rest at room temperature about 30 minutes unless you are in a warmer environment, then I'd let rest about 20 minutes. It should be slightly firm and just beginning to soften.
