They Were Good Enough to Post the Recipe

I brought some regular ol’ lemon bars out with me for a day at the park, and came home with an empty tray. My homie said that I always post crazy hard recipes, so I’m reposting the one I used to make the MOST delicious, buttery, lemony, deliciousness. It’s not my own, it’s from the interweb and it’s easy peasy. Enjoy that extra couple of pounds around your middle – they’re worth it.

“Tart, rich and perfection, all rolled into one! Wow your friends with this simple recipe. Hint: No Substitutions!”
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
 
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 lemons, juiced
DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.
