Crust: Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl of a standing mixer, using the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl by hand, mix together 2 C all-purpose flour, 2/3 C powdered sugar and 2 sticks chilled cubed butter until they come together to form a dough.
Press the dough into butter greased 9” x 13” glass baking dish. Bake the crust until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Remove and cool. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F to bake the bars.

Pour the filling into the cooled prepared crust. Place the dish in the center of the oven and bake at 300 degree F until the custard is set, about 45 minutes – it will be lightly browned in the corners. Cool and then dust with a light coating of powdered sugar just before serving. If you dust too early, the sugar will just dissolve in the topping.
|Mmmmm...great lemony flavor on top|
If looking for a dessert wine to pair with the lemon bars, I would suggest a late harvest muscato or Semillon……or espresso!
