"A different take on the lemon bars we all love. I actually prefer them to lemon. This is my favorite bar cookie and I'm asked to bring it when going to a potluck or picnic. The recipe says it serves 36, but you can't eat just one of these delicious, tangy lime bars. You can omit the glaze and sprinkle with powdered sugar if that's your preference."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12x15-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry cutter until crust mixture resembles crumbs. Pat crust evenly into bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk eggs, 1/3 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup flour, white sugar, 2 teaspoons lime peel, baking powder, and food coloring in a bowl; pour over the crust.
  5. Return baking dish to oven; bake until filling is set, about 25 minutes. Cool thoroughly.
  6. Whisk 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and 1 teaspoon grated lime peel to make a smooth glaze; spread evenly over cooled lime bars. Let glaze set before serving.

The fact that this is simply a lime variation of a fairly standard lemon bar recipe doesn’t make these bars any less delicious. Some of these recipes, as does this one, call for flour in the fi...

Made these for a family reunion. Mostly the women liked them, not so much the men. Followed directions with just a couple of changes. While making the middle I used 5 limes so it equaled a li...

I gave these 5 stars because this recipe is delish and even though I made a few small changes, the origional recipe would be still be great! I didn't put the glaze on top, just a dusting of powe...
