Easy Lemon Bars Recipe


When life gives you lemons make lemonade, or a ton of lemony treats: Which is what I did.

Easy Lemon Bars-2

I was headed out the door yesterday and the Fedex man pulled in my driveway. He handed me this box full of Lemons from Limoneira (a lemon grower in California).  It’s the little things in life that make me happy.  All of the things that I could make with that box full of lemons!

First things first. These super Easy Lemon Bars! The crust is made with this really simple Sugar Cookie Mix.  Just mix it and 1/2 cup of melted butter or margarine for the crust. Press it into a 9×13 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.

While the crust is baking mix the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large bowl. When the crust comes out of the oven, pour the lemon mix over the top.  Pop the dish back into the oven and bake for another 20 minutes
