Farmhouse Lemon Bars






Total Time:2 hr 10 min
Prep:10 min
Inactive:1 hr 30 min
Cook:30 min
Yield:16 bars
Level:Intermediate

Ingredients
Crust:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened, plus more for greasing the baking dish
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Filling:
3 large eggs
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons (about 3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, for dusting

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with butter.
For the crust: Combine the flour, butter, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor; pulse to combine. Pat the crust into the prepared baking dish, leaving a small lip around the edge to hold the filling. Place in the oven and bake until slightly golden, 10 minutes.
For the filling: In a small bowl, combine the eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, flour, sugar and salt; whisk together, then pour over the crust. Bake until the filling is firm and the crust is golden brown, 20 minutes.
Let cool for 30 minutes, then chill in the refrigerator until the filling is firm and has set, 1 hour.
Remove the lemon bars from baking dish and dust with confectioner's sugar. Cut into 16 squares. Arrange on a platter and serve.
