Total Time 55 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 40 minutes

Yield 20 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 c.

flour

1/2 c.

sugar

1/4 tsp.

salt

2

sticks (1 cup) salted butter, cut into small cubes

1 1/2 c.

sugar

1/4 c.

flour

4

whole large eggs

Zest and juice of 4 medium-sized lemons

Powdered sugar, for sifting

Steps:

  • For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350˚. Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with butter. (Use an 8 x 10 pan if you'd like the layers to be a little thicker.) Stir together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry cutter to cut it all together until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press into the prepared pan and bake until golden around the edges, about 20 minutes. For the filling: Stir together the sugar and flour. Crack in the eggs and whisk to combine. Add the lemon zest and juice and mix until combined. Pour over the crust and bake about 20 minutes. Allow to cool in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, then sift powdered sugar over the top before cutting into squares.

LAYERED LEMON DESSERT SQUARES RECIPE: HOW TO MAKE IT



Layered Lemon Dessert Squares Recipe: How to Make It image

I found this recipe in an old cookbook and changed it to be extra citrusy. If you’re a fan of Key lime pie, substitute lime for the lemon flavors. —Dawn E. Lowenstein, Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania

BEST LEMON BARS RECIPE - NYT COOKING
Lemon bars are all about contrast: sour lemon and sweet sugar, crumbly base and creamy topping, buttery crust and tart filling. Two common ingredients lift this recipe above the pack: baking powder for a fluffy filling and shredded coconut for a rich, round-tasting crust. (Once baked, the coconut flavor almost disappears.)  Bakers who avoid preservatives will find an easy version of homemade sweetened coconut in the tip below the recipe.) For thicker lemon squares, use the square baking pan; for thinner ones, the large rectangle. For an easy lemon tart, simply cut the recipe in half and bake it in an 8-inch round tart pan, pressing the crust up the sides.
