confectioners' sugar for dusting
I am the queen of lemon square. I make them about once a week! for perfect lemon squares: 1. mix the flour and cold butter with your hands. once that is done add the p.sugar. I use a 9x9 pan. 2. only bake the crust for 15 minutes. 3. when making the filling I always add lemon zest. I use most of the lemon. I let my nose tell me it's enough. then I add all the juice form the lemon. 4. after I poor the filling into to hot crust i bake it for 20 more minutes. they come out PERFECT every time. even my friends that don't like sweets love these. they are so fast to make and i always have everything on hand.
This recipe was awful. The crust was way to thick for the pan. The top of the lemon squares turned dark brown while cooking. This is definately not the recipe that my mother and I used to make!
yummy buttery cookie crust...I added another Tlbs of lemon juice to the filling...delicious! Exactly the lemon bar recipe I was looking for!
I made these for a bake sale at my child's school and was asked for the recipe by at least 6 of the teachers! It's easy and delicious!!
This recipe was easy to follow and tasted pretty good when it was finished. The only problem I had was it never really cooked, it was like a liquidy gel in the middle, it never solidified and became cake like.
This recipe was really easy... BUT it's not very lemony!
this is the only lemon square recipe my family likes
I have made these lemon squares for my family and they just love ithem. They are always asking for more when I bake them. I would defimitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great treat of summer or anytime.
