A Taste of Spring

Lemon Bars

Grease 9x13 pan. Preheat oven to 350. Combine the following ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour into greased pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until light golden brown.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup soften butter
4 eggs
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Once the lemon bars have baked, pierce them with a fork and make the following glaze. Pour glaze on the bars while bars are hot.

2 cups powder sugar
4 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

These bars are very soft. If you need to cut them to serve, make them the day before. They will cut easier if you let them set for a day. They are wonderful...never mind the fact that you will probably gain 5 pounds when eating!!!!!

grace and peace,
