    iglowforyou's Note:

    I have created this recipe, using a variety of other recipes for a base and then changing many things to meet my intense lemon craving! These go together very quickly and they are very tangy, on the too-tangy side of wonderful almost. If you lovelovelove tangy lemon and want a nice crisp crust with a higher ratio of lemon to crust, please try this recipe and tell me what you think!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 20


    9x13 pan

    Units: US | Metric





    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Using a food processor, pulse cold margerine or butter, brown sugar, almonds, flour, and salt until it is blended together and has a sandy appearance.
    3. 3
      Pat crust into a 9x13 pan (i give it a spray to keep everything from sticking and prefer to use a glass pan). It may seem very dry, but that is ok.
    4. 4
      Bake crust for 20 minutes or until edges are just starting to turn golden.
    5. 5
      Beat your eggs with a fork or whisk, then stir in lemon juice. In another bowl, mix flour, sugar, and salt. I use 1.5 cups sugar and they are very zingy. If you have any doubts, or know that you prefer slightly less zing, try 1.75 cups of sugar!
    6. 6
      Remove crust from oven and reduce heat to 320°F This step is important!
    7. 7
      mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Pour mixture on hot crust, and return to oven for 22 minutes, or until filling has set. It might still look a little wobbly in the center, but it will firm up a bit while it cools.
    8. 8
      Cool, dust with icing sugar (You will need it if you used the lesser amount of sugar!).
    9. 9
      Pucker up! :D.

      These bars were very lemony and tangy! My famiy fears what I call "tart'" but I chased them down and made them taste. They were pleasantly surprised with the "puckeriness" of them, but not so bad they made their jaws hurt! I followed the recipe exactly and they set up perfectly. We prefer these chilled. Made for PAC Spring 2012...I will make these again and try a lime version!
