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!
