Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Lemon Snowbars

I know you can buy a boxed mix for lemon bars but why would you when you can make these just as easily....and they taste better???????

Lemon Snowbars

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture clings together. 

Pat into your prepared pan. 

Bake for 12 minutes.

While crust is baking, beat eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Add sugar and lemon juice and continue to beat for 8 - 10 minutes until mixture is slightly thick and pale yellow in color.

Stir together the 2 tablespoons flour and the baking powder.

Add to egg mixture and stir just til blended and moistened.

Pour over partially baked crust.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until set.

Allow to cool then dust with powdered sugar.

Cut into squares.

  1. Valerie, looks yummy and I take it you can double or triple the recipe for a big batch. Does it change the baking time? I have a big reunion coming up and this would be a great take along. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Hi Rondanoh... yes you can double the amount. I recently did that for a wedding rehearsal. It doesn't change the baking time by much. Maybe a few minutes longer.
