For years now, instead of a cake, I enjoy a lemon meringue pie for my birthday instead. This year am going to try these for sure.
Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
Gluten-Free Lemon Bars Recipe
For the crust:
- 1 ½ cups gluten-free flour
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ¾ cup butter (softened)
For the Filling:
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
- ¾ cup lemon juice
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- 2-3 teaspoons grated lemon peel (optional)
Preheat oven to 350º.
Combine crust ingredients and mix well.
Press into the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch baking pan.
Bake for 20 minutes until the crust begins to turn a light brown.
Remove pan from oven.
Beat filling ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
Pour over warm crust.
Return to oven, and bake for and additional 15-20 minutes until filling is set, and slightly brown around the edges.
Remove from oven, and cool for 10-15 minutes.
Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
Use a butter knife to loosen lemon bars from the edges of the pan.
Let cool completely.
Cut bars, and remove from pan.
