Lemon bar crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup butter

Lemon bar filling

  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice about 2 or 3 lemons will do the trick
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


For the crust

  • Combine all the ingredients until the dough clings together.
  • Press the dough into a 9×9 greased pan.
  • Bake for 17 minutes at 350 degrees.

For the filling

  • Mix the eggs together first.
  • Then continue to mix in the rest of the ingredients. Try not to over- mix the filling… a tip would be to add the dry ingredients together in a bowl first.


  • Take the crust out of the oven and pour the lemon filling on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Let it cool completely before you cut into squares or shapes.
  • Once the shapes are cut, sift powdered sugar on top and garnish with edible flowers!
