These lemon bars have NO coconut, something that everyone asked me for. Some of you can’t stand coconut ( I get it, Mr Magpie isn’t a huge fan) so these creamy lemon bars are just the ticket!

Lemon Bars

Description

Amazing creamy lemon bars with a shortbread crust.

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 3/4 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest

Filling:

  • 4 eggs and one yolk
  • 2 tbsp of lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  1. Kick the tires and light the fires to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix the flour and sugar then cut the butter in.
  3. Add the lemon zest.
  4. Mix completely then press into the bottom of the pan.
  5. Bake in the oven for 9-12 minutes until the base has browned. Remove and set to the side.
  6. Continue with the filling. Mix the sugar, baking soda and flour together.
  7. Whip the eggs and one yolk in a bowl, add the lemon juice and rind, then add the dry ingredients in.
  8. I added the extra yolk to make the filling more creamy.
  9. Pour the filling on the crust. Bake in a 325 degree oven until the middle is set. The lower temperature makes the top end up a lot less brown, as most recipes tell you at the end to cover the too-browned top with icing sugar.

    It’s called CHAOS (can’t have anyone over syndrom **from flylady.net) 🙁 but lemon bars would make it all better …
