Lemon Bars

Sometimes I feel like all of the desserts I make are chocolate. So this is a change. I decided to make lemon bars. I have tried before and they never turn out the I expect a lemon bar should be. So I went on a hunt, it was a long hunt, but I feel like I have found a winner.  These are so delicious and I am so excited I found this recipe. 

These are so deliciously lemony. And the crust, oh the crust, it is so light and flaky. You really need to try these.

For the crust:
1 cup Butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups Flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt

For the filling:
6 large Eggs, room temperature
3 cups Granulated Sugar
1 cup & 6 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 cup Flour
Powdered Sugar, for dusting

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. For the crust, cream the butter and sugar until light in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Combine the flour and salt and with the mixer on low, add to the butter until just mixed. Dump the dough onto a well-floured board and gather into a ball. Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into a 9x13 cake pan, building up a 1/2-inch edge on all sides. Chill.

3. Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack. Leave the oven on.

4. For the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and flour. Pour over the crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the filling is set. Let cool to room temperature. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
