Luscious Lemon Bars

To me, there’s no flavor that screams spring like lemon. I just love this recipe for lemon bars. The crust is flaky and buttery. The lemon filling is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. They are ooey-gooey and downright delicious!

Luscious Lemon Bars
Crust:
1 cup melted butter
dash salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour

Filling:
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
4 beaten eggs
8 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/4 tablespoons cornstarch

Gently mix the crust ingredients together and press into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Combine filling ingredients, adding cornstarch after all else is mixed. Pour on crust and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until filling is set. Place on a cooling rack and run a sharp knife or metal spatula along edges (they are prone to being very sticky where the filling cooks. If your knife is sticking, spray it with non-stick cooking spray). Let cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Cut into squares and serve.
