Easy to please

With Valentines Day behind us, I thought I would share my get out of jail free card with everyone out there. My husband absolutely love my mom’s lemon bars and it’s usually an easy fix for birthdays, anniversaries and any other holiday that I may have not purchased a gift for. My mom usually makes sure that there are lemon bars around when we come home for the holidays. Unfortunately, I love these bars almost as much as Anthony, so I rarely make them because I will typically eat 5 of them before I realize that I have lemon bars and powdered sugar all over my face. Here’s the recipe!

1 cup butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 cups flour

Mix together and pat into an ungreased 9×13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven and set aside.

4 eggs

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup of flour

2 cups sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

Mis and pour over baked crust. Bake for 25 minutes at 350F. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.

These bars are amazing and very simple to make. They are sure to win over theĀ  lemon lover in your home!
