Here Comes the Sun…do, da, do, do!

I’m not sure why, but the change in season from Winter to Spring makes me crave lemon bars. Trust me, I’ve tried numerous recipes and have sampled my fair share over the years, but these cake like twist on the traditional is lemony lusciousness. Plus they’re a breeze to make, cut, serve and store!

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Lemon Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest

Mix flour, salt and butter together in stand mixer. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, zest and lemon juice until incorporated. Add to mixer and gently fold until batter comes together. Spread in 8 X 8 inch pan and bake in 350 degree oven 20-25 minutes until done. Whisk glaze ingredients together until smooth and spread over cooled bars. Enjoy!
