2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened


2 cups sugar

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder


1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all crust ingredients in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

  3. STEP 3

    Press mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 18-22 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

  4. STEP 4

    Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except flour and baking powder in same bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add 1/4 cup flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed. Pour filling over hot, partially baked crust. Continue baking 23-25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, and vanilla in bowl. Beat at low speed, gradually adding enough lemon juice and scraping bowl often, until desired glazing consistency. Drizzle over cooled bars. Cut into bars.

Tip #1

To cut bars into diamonds, make diagonal cuts across the length of the pan. Make a second set of cuts parallel to the short side of the pan.
