  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. To make crust: Mix together the butter, 1 1/3 cups flour and 1/4 cup sugar with a fork until crumbly. Press into an 8 inch square pan and bake for 20 minutes. Crust will look white. Do not brown!
  3. Combine the eggs, 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until well mixed. Pour over pre-baked crust.
  4. Return to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let bars cool before cutting.

While these did turn out okay, it's definitely not was I was looking for. It makes a really thin bar, I wanted something thicker. It tastes fine, but I will never make again, or if I do, I wil...

These were fantastic! I had several lemon bar recipes to try, and I chose these specifically because some reviewers said there was not enough filling. I like more crust than filling (I must be...

I have been baking for many years, and this is the BEST lemon bar recipe I have ever come across. I would suggest cooking the crust for five minutes less than the recipe says.

I made this for a bake sale, and they were snapped up! Delicious taste! I cut the sugar in half and added some more lemon juice since I have a "sour" tooth. Overall, mouth-watering.

I followed the recipe and it was amazing! Its a new favorite!
