Lemon-Lime Bars Recipe

I baked these bars for a luncheon on a hot summer day. A gentleman made his way to the kitchen to compliment the cook who made them.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar. Add lime peel; mix well. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes or just until edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Combine the flour and baking powder. Add to egg mixture with lemon juice and peel; beat until frothy. Pour over hot crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 4 dozen.

"I followed the recipe and concluded - either half the crust or double the filling. Had a nice flavour."

"This recipe was okay. I used half lemon, half lime juice and doubled the filling the second time I made them. I agree with others that it needs more filling in proportion to the crust."

"Wow! These are fantastic! I thought the crust was a little too buttery, so next time I will probably use less butter or maybe more flour. I also did not put the lime peel in the crust, but I did put the lemon zest in the filling. I like them best when they are cold. Wonderful!!"
