I LOVE Lemon. It is so refreshing and always reminds me of spring. So of course, when the the weather is cold and I am thinking of spring, I make me some Lemon Bars. Super fast, super yummy, and a favorite.
First, you'll make the crust. Combine the flour, powdered sugar and butter in a bowl and cut the butter in. I use my fingers, but you can use knives or a pastry blender.
Then press the mixture into an 9x13 pan. Bake it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend. This is the trick to getting a really smooth topping. Very important!!
Once the crust is baked, pour the egg mixture over the top and bake it again for 25 minutes. Then sprinkle with powdered sugar while it cools.
