You are My Sunshine!


Aren't these gorgeous!  I think in the craze of cake pops, cupcakes, and whoopee pies the Lemon Bar has been forgotten. I think it is time to resurrect it from it's grave.  Today I am having a party for all my friends.  I can't think of  a better way to celebrate Valentines Day then with your friends. 

You are My Sunshine Lemon Bars
1 Cup of butter softened
1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar
1 Teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of flour
4 eggs
2 cups of granulated sugar
zest of one lemon
6 Tablespoons of lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
1/4 cup of confectioners sugar for dusting the tops of the bars

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
grease an 8 by 11 pan with butter and line with parchment paper
In a bowl mix flour, butter, confectioners sugar, and vanilla
Press in the pan and with a fork poke dots into the mixture
Bake for 20 minutes.
Then mix eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and zest together pour over dough and bake for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool, dust with confectioners sugar, and cut into bars.

Hope your day is filled with lots of hugs and kisses.
XOXOXO

I love Lemon Bars, and you're right, they do get forgotten. I think they're the best non-chocolate dessert out there!

I couldn't agree more. The lemon bar is a divine and often left out treat. Hope your time was great. Take care,

Boy, do these ever bring back memories! My mom used to make lemon bars a lot when I was younger.

Hmmm... the trick is getting German husband to pretend that these are not as sweet as they really are.

Thanks for the flackback.
