My Absolute Favorite Lemon Bar Recipe

I’m not gonna say it’s culinary week up in here…but it might be culinary week up in here. #sorrynotsorry for all the food porn I’ve got coming your way. But here’s some more!

I made lemon bars for my Annual Friends Christmas Party a couple weeks ago, so it’s about time to share these babies with you guys.

Ingredients:

Cookie Base
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
zest from 1/2 lemon
3/4 stick cold, softened butter

Filling (I usually make double the following amounts)
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
zest from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 eggs
3 tbsp greek yogurt (I used Chobani)

Directions:
1. Add flour, salt, sugar, lemon zest, and butter and mix well. You can do this by hand or food processor.
2. In a baking pan, spread mixture evenly, pat down. Bake at 350 F for 20 mins; take out and let cool for 20 mins.
3. Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt; then whisk in the grapefruit zest, juice, eggs, and yogurt until thoroughly combined.
4. Pour over cookie base and bake at 350 F for 20-25 mins until set and center does not jiggle.
5. Let cool; dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
