A Slice Of Heaven

I don't know why anything lemon flavored makes me giddy with happiness.  Especially the pastries.   So, when I saw this recipe by frugalfarmwife, it was love at first sight.  It looks so yummy and gluten free too!

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:
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.
