Gooey Lemon Bars

Pin It

Tried a new version for some lemon bars.  Was very pleased with this recipe.  Most recipes have powdered sugar on top, but this has them plain on top and still very good.  I like that they are not gooey on top, just in the middle.  The recipe is adapted from Mr. Food.  I remember growing up watching his segments on the noonday news in OK, on t.v.

2 cups flour
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup powdered sugar

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp lemon extract
1/2 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mash together the ingredients for the crust together (flour, margarine/butter, and powdered sugar).  Coat a 9x13 pan with a non-stick cooking spray.  Pour crumbled mix into the pan and press down. 

Bake in oven for 15 minutes.

For the filling, beat the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and extract on medium speed for about a minute.  Then, add the flour, mixing well.  Once the crust is done, add the sauce on top of the crust and bake for another 30 minutes, until it is set.  The top should be firm and not sticky.  Although, the toothpick did come out gooey.  Just don't want to burn this dessert.

Wait to cut, until cooled completely.  The middle will cut clean once cooled.
