Lemon Bars!

Lemon BarsIn tribute to a very special someone – today we honor the lemon bar! Well, at least I do by sharing my recipe….

For a half sheet pan (13″x18’x1″), mix together 3/4 cup of sugar, 3 cups of flour and pinch of salt. Cut in 1-1/2 cups of cold butter and mix gently. Pat into the pan to form the crust. Chill for about 10-15 minutes in refrigerator, then bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until just slightly brown. ¬†While the crust is cooking, mix together 9 eggs, 4-1/2 cups sugar, 2 cups fresh lemon juice and 1-1/2 cups of flour. Whisk together well. When crust is done, cool about 3-5 minutes then add the lemon-egg mixture then bake for about 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool completely, maybe even overnight in refrigerator. Cut into squares and enjoy – “This one’s for you!”
