Amazing Lemon Bars

The weather up here still feels a lot like winter.  So, to compensate, I have been craving spring recipes! I had never made lemon bars before and they were on my food bucket list.  This recipe was absolutely amazing.  I found it on the Food Network and I ended up with great lemon bars.  I even brought them to school and everyone agreed that they were great! Maybe if I keep making spring like foods, the weather will start to reflect them?  A girl can hope!

Amazing Lemon Bars
For the Crust:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
For the Filling:
6 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup flour
powdered sugar for topping

1. Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease 2 9 inch round cake pans.
2. For the crust: In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the flour and salt.  Divide the dough into two balls and place one in each pan.  Press into the pan and up the sides.  The crust should go about 1 1/2 or 2 inches up the sides of the pan.  Freeze for 15 minutes.  Once chilled, bake the crust for 20 minutes.  Let cool.
3. Make the filling: In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until pale yellow in color.  Beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour.  Divide mixture among the two pans.  Bake in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes or until the filling is no longer wobbly.  Let cool.  Dust with powdered sugar and cut into slices.

Enjoy :)
