Bright, tangy lemon bars recipe with a shortbread crust and lemon custard filling. A simple powdered sugar dusting makes these fruit bars a classic!
If you’re a lemon lover, you’re going to go CRAZY for these bars. And let’s be real… even if you’ve never liked lemon bars in your life, you’re going to go crazy for these bars. They’re simply just that good. And the best part about them is that they’re not that hard to make!
I’m serious. I’ve made these only one time and it took me maybe 15 minutes to get them in the oven! If you’re wanting literally the BEST dessert ever that doesn’t require you being the 3rd-time winner of the Cupcake Wars, you’ve come to the right place.
Obviously, I’m going completely insane because of these amazing lemon bars. You can either sit there and keep judging me for it, or you can make these and see what all the fuss is about. (Trust me, it’s actually worth it.)
The crust for these easy bars are just three ingredients: flour, powdered sugar and butter. This is one of my favorite crusts to make. Easy and buttery delicious.
What gives the bar lemon flavor? Lemon juice and a touch of lemon zest. Sometimes we get crazy and use the zest of a whole lemon. Because we really, really love lemon. It doesn’t sound like these bars would have that much flavor, but they really do!
