Christmas dessert recipe — lemon bars
We’ve posted plenty here at First Arkansas News over the past few weeks. While most people have likely taken care of making Christmas desserts at this point, you never know when someone is in need of a recipe at the last minute.
To them I present a perennial favorite — lemon bars. Is this strictly a Christmas recipe? No it’s not. However, everyone loves lemon bars regardless of what time of year it happens to be. Making them available at Christmas, then, makes a whole lot of sense.
Here’s something else that (hopefully) makes sense. Pretty soon, we’ll post an eBook containing all of our holiday recipes that will be free for our visitors to download and use. An eBook, of course, is just a nicely formatted PDF file that people can download and use as they see fit. Stay tuned for an announcement about that, huh?
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons lemon juice
Cream together butter, 1 1/2 cup flour, and powdered sugar. Pat in a 13″ x 9″ x 2″ baking pan. Bake 18 minutes at 350 F or 325 F if using a glass pan. Beat together the rest of the ingredients and pour over crust. Bake an additional 25 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
