Lois’ Lemon Bars



Oven 350 F

1 3/4  cups flour

½ cup butter

½  cup powdered sugar


Soften the butter slightly in the microwave, but don’t let it melt. Mix everything together until crumbly with a pastry blender or fork. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9×13 pan. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 F.


2 cups sugar

4 Tbsp flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

4 eggs

Juice of 2 lemons (1/3 cup)


Beat together with a wire whisk until well blended. Pour into hot crust. Return to the oven and bake 12-15 minutes at 350 F. Cool.

¼ cup powdered sugar




Pour the powdered sugar into a small strainer and sprinkle evenly over the top.

Lemon Bars were a staple food in Ree Heights during the 60’s and 70’s; they probably still are!
