Classic Lemon Bars

Classic Lemon Barswith Powdered Sugar

Lemon bars are a much-loved staple for a reason: They're tangy, sweet, and have a deliciously buttery crust. Our take on the all-American dessert doesn't stray far from the classic—if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Shortbread dough is topped with creamy lemon curd, baked until perfectly gooey, and then chilled. A sprinkling of powdered sugar gives these bars their signature look (and a little added sweetness). You'll want to add this to your recipe book!
