Meyer Lemon Bars Recipe Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1/2 lb unsalted butter, warmed to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Lemon Filling:

  • 6 extra-large eggs
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup flour
  • Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Meyer Lemon Bars Recipe Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. To make the crust: Cream butter and sugar together until lightly whipped using the paddle attachment of your electric mixer. Add the flour and salt.

3. Turn the mixer down to low and put in the butter and mix lightly until dough forms. Put dough down on a floured surface and gather it into a ball.

Press the ball of dough into your 9 by 13-inch baking sheet, covering bottom entirely and making a 1/2 inch edge around sides. Chill.

4. Bake your crust in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Leave the crust in the pan, and place on a wire rack to cool while you make the filling. Leave your oven on.

5. Now you’ll make the filling. Whisk together eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour. Pour filling over cooled crust and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until it is set. Cool to room temperature.

6. Cut your lemon bars up, sprinkle with some confectioner’s sugar and enjoy.
