Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Bars

Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Bars

Serves 24.

I got lazy and didn't end up making the frosting that is supposed to lay overtop of these bars.  Instead, I just sprinkled them with a healthy dose of powdered sugar.  Please reference the link below for the frosting recipe, or keep them classic (and easy!) and just do what I did.
Slightly adapted from: Just a Pinch

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

4 eggs, whisked
2 cups sugar
4 T. flour
6 T. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix crust ingredients and pat into the bottom of a greased 13x9 baking dish.  Bake for 15 minutes.

As crust is baking, combine filling ingredients.  Mix well.  Pour filling over crust and bake for 25 additional minutes.

Let bars cool completely, then cut and serve.
