Lemon Squares


Lemon Squares- Karri Perry, Blue Ribbon Favorites 

Make in an 8x8 pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees


1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

3 Tbs granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

4 Tbs melted butter 

Stir together, should resemble wet sand. Prepare the pan with a spray of non-stick oil, lay parchment in with overhang for handles.

Spray the parchment with the non stick oil. 

Pour in the graham cracker mixture. Tamp mixture with the bottom of a drinking glass. Set aside.


3 large eggs + 1 yolk

1/2 cup lemon juice

1 1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup all purpose flour

2 tsp lemon zest

Pinch salt

*1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar for dusting dessert

Whisk together the eggs-and yolk, (a food processor works well for creating the filling,) add the eggs, sugar, salt, zest, and flour until combined and mostly smooth. 

Pour mixture over prepared crust.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree over-on middle rack, for about 30-35 minutes, filling will be puffed and mostly set—barely jiggly in the center. Edges may brown slightly, but the overall look will be a pale matte yellow.

Allow lemon bars to cool completely, then refrigerate for 2 hours- to overnight. Lift lemon squares from the pan with parchment, place on a cutting board. 

Dust with confectioner’s sugar before cutting into 12 squares—using a sharp knife. Store refrigerated in an airtight container.  Use cute cupcake liners to hold individual servings on a tray or platter.
