This Lemon Bars Recipe is a classic family favorite- super easy to throw together with a bright and tangy-sweet lemon curd layer and short bread crust.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8" x 8" pan with parchment or foil, letting the ends hang out for easy removal later (if using foil, grease with cooking spray first).
Mix flour, butter and confectioner's sugar until well combined.
Press evenly into the pan building it up around a 1/2 inch around the edges and set aside.
Bake for 20 minutes.
While the crust bakes, beat together eggs, granulated sugar, baking powder, kosher salt and lemon juice until well combined an smooth.
When crust is done baking, pour lemon mixture evenly over the crust.
Bake for around 25 minutes or until there's no imprint left behind when you lightly press the middle.
Cool and remove from pan in one piece.
Cut into squares and dust with confectioners sugar. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
