DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Make crust: mix flour and brown sugar using a food processor until fully incorporated. Toss butter into flour mixture and pulse to combine until butter is cut into tiny pea-sized pieces and dough appears lumpy. Pack gently into ungreased 13 x 9 x 2" pan (I lined mine w/foil to simplify cutting). Bake 20 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile: Make lemon topping. Beat eggs in medium bowl w/electric mixer (I just did everything in the food processor for easy cleanup). Add vanilla extract and 3/4 c powdered sugar. Mix well. Add lemon juice and remaining powdered sugar until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • As soon as crust is finished, remove from oven and reduce temperature to 300*. Immediately pour lemon mixture over hot crust. Bake completely, about 30 minutes Cool and cut into 24 bars.
  • NOTE: Instructions emphasize that the crust MUST be hot when you pour the lemon mixture over. Not sure why, but they made a special note, so I'm passing that along.
