Better Lemon Bars!

A little while ago, I posted this lemon bar recipe. However, I tried a new recipe for Thanksgiving, and the results were so much tastier that I thought I'd post this recipe as well. 
This comes highly recommended by me. It's an excellent light dessert that contrasts with the heavier holiday sweets, so I bet if you made these for a Christmas occasion, you'd be well-loved by all the guests! Here's the recipe. 


For the Crust

1 cup all-purpose flour

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup confectioner's (powdered) sugar

2 tablespoons skim milk

For the Topping

1 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 large egg

2 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Confectioner's sugar for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 inch square baking pan with cooking spray. 

2. In a medium bowl, prepare crust by combining flour, butter, and confectioner's sugar. Mix well. Pour in milk while stirring, until dough is able to be gathered into a ball. 

3. Pat dough evenly into the bottom and 1/4 inch up the sides of the pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crust is golden. Then take out of the oven and cool for 5 minutes. 

4. To prepare the topping, in a medium bowl, combine sugar, lemon juice, flour, egg, egg whites, and baking powder. Mix well. 

5. Pour topping over cooled crust. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until top is set. Cool completely and dust with confectioner's sugar. Cut, serve, and enjoy!
