How to make lemon bars?

We started making these delightful lemon bars with a bowl. We combine flour and sugar. The butter needs to be cold and cut into small cubes. Slowly add the butter to the dry mixture as you stir. Once the dough is mixed, it will look like pie crust.

Pat into a greased or parchment paper lined 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until the sides are slightly brown. 

Next, we will get the lemon layer made. In a small bowl start beating the eggs. Then add the sugar, flour, eggs, lemon juice, baking powder, and zest and stir until frothy. Pour over the crust the cooked crust. Then bake again for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Making blueberry drizzle

You can also make a delicious blueberry drizzle as topping to make these lemon bars even better. To make the drizzle you start with a small. Add fresh or frozen 1 cup of blueberries to the pan.

Then add a ½ cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Let the drizzle cook on high for 5-10 until the blueberries breakdown and thicken into a sauce. Then let cool for 10 minutes and pour of lemon bars and enjoy!
