When you want a dessert that will really brighten your day, a lemon bar is the only place to turn. And The Pioneer Woman’s Lemon Bars, with their extra thick layer of cookie crust and tart but sweet flavor, are the best lemon bar out there as far as I can tell. They’re simple to make and thanks to their gooey zing of lemon, just one bite will make any day seem sunny. (Not that you’ll be stopping at one bite – that’s nearly impossible with these!)
These start with a sugary cookie crust that’s thicker than you might be used to, but the dough is made by cutting in cold butter so the baked base crumbles nicely when you bite into it. In other words, it’s a nice cookie to lemon filling ratio, but it’s not at all dense or overwhelming.
The crust gets a headstart in the oven and while it bakes, you mix up the filling which is a simple combination of eggs, flour, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice. That gets poured onto the crust before it heads back into the oven to set and once the bars are done, they get a dusting of snowy powdered sugar. (Because what would a lemon bar be without a dusting of powdered sugar?)
