Meal #64: Lemon Bars

Ok, it’s not really a dinner meal, but we’ve been on a lemon bar obsession for a few weeks and figured that qualified them for posting.


  • Lemon juice and lemon zest, preferably from real lemons
    • This is the second or third time we’ve made lemon bars, but the first time that we had a proper lemon juicer. So we discovered that maybe two lemons is too many due to how lemony the bars turned out. But after eating a few, and a few more, we got used to it.
  • Powdered sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • Unsalted butter
  • Eggs

Finished Product

A lemon bar isn’t the most photogenic dessert, but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in taste – they’re surprisingly addictive and it’s hard to make a batch of these last longer than a week. Really have to master portion control or you’ll find yourself making more sooner than you’d expect.
