I used lemons given to us by our friend with the lemon tree- she gave us a ton of them and I made some extra-tart ginger lemonade last week- love that stuff!! Thanks for the lemons, M. :)
My oven always bakes things super fast- the recipe said 30 minutes for the top layer. I checked at exactly 15 and they were already over-browned. :( So watch the baking time. In the recipe, I stated to bake for 15-30 minutes. If you oven bakes fast, you should check before 15 minutes.
Lemon Square Bars
adapted from Allrecipes
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
5/8 cup lemon juice (1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons)
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
2.In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups flour and confectioners' sugar. Blend in the melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan (use plastic wrap and your hands to do this).
3.Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1/4 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.
4.Bake for an additional 15-30 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
