Prep: 10 Minutes


Cook: 35 Minutes


42 - 48 Servings


Make these irresistible, creamy lemon bars for a summer family treat- you won't want to miss out! Simple, sweet, and will make you come back for seconds with a buttery-goodness crust. Prepare in a sheet pan to bring for a large group event or cut into bars and freeze for the family to enjoy later.

  • Ingredients
    • Crust:
    • 1 cup softened butter (salted)
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
    • Middle layer:
    • 4 beaten eggs
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 4 Tbsp flour
    • 7 Tbsp lemon juice (Real lemon bottled juice preferred)
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • Frosting:
    • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    • 3 cups powdered sugar
    • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp lemon juice (Real lemon bottled juice preferred)
    • Optional: lemon zest for topping
  • Directions

      *This recipe is courtesy of Megan from her family kitchen, who works in Nordic Ware's sales department. It comes from her mother Meg as a family favorite dessert:

      "This recipe has been a family treat for many years, at wedding and baby showers, graduation parties and recently was a request from my brother, at his 80th birthday party. If you make them ahead, they can be cut and frozen in layers in plastic sealed containers. I would freeze a layer, place wax paper and then add more layers, depending on the size of the storage container."

      Instructions:

      Preheat oven to 325°F. Prepare Half Sheet Pan with baking spray, coating both the bottom and the sides of the pan.

      Crust:

      Mix all crust ingredients using a standard mixer until combined. Press dough into the bottom of a Half Sheet Pan. Bake for about 20 minutes- crust should not be brown.

      Middle Layer:

      Combine all middle layer ingredients until thoroughly mixed and pour over the baked crust.

      Bake for 15-18 minutes, until filling is firm and light tan in color.

      Frosting:

      Melt butter in a saucepan on the stovetop. Take off heat and let butter cool slightly. Whisk in powdered sugar and lemon juice. Adjust liquid amounts for desired frosting consistency.

      Assembly:

      Once crust and middle layer are cooled, spread frosting evenly over the top of bars. Cut and serve or freeze for later. Makes about 42-48 lemon bars depending on size of squares.
