Lemon Bars: A Reddit Recipe

It’s no surprise I follow the r/foodporn subreddit, so last week when someone posted this gorgeous picture of perfect cut lemon bars AND included the recipe, I knew I had to give it ago. There’s definitely a lemon dessert theme happening in my house during quarantine.

Check out the original post here, and my take on it below. Enjoy!


For the crust
2 cups flour
1 cup butter (2 sticks) room temp
1/2 cup powdered sugar
lemon zest from 1 lemon

For the filling
4 eggs
5-7 tbsp lemon juice
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9 x 12 pan.
  2. Mix crust ingredients in a stand mixer until they’re well combined and crumbly. Press mixture into your pan and bake for 20 mins.
  3. Meanwhile for the filling, thoroughly beat your eggs, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
  4. Pour your filling mixture on the baked crust, then bake for an additional 25 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool completely, dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.
