Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are one of my favorite desserts.  I came across this old picture I took of some a few years ago, and remembered that this recipe was really good, so I thought I'd post the recipe here.  Remember- no substitutions!!  ;)

Lemon Bars

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 lemons, juiced

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2.In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

3.Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/12 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.

4.Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool.   After bars have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares.
