Our Best Lemon Bars Recipe


Lemon bars are a treat I treasure intensely. I’m crazy over the buttery crust, and the tart custard filling. Together they make a delicately balanced dessert that is great for any occasion.

Every time I make them, I secretly want to keep them all for myself.

Making The Best Lemon Bars Recipe

“The Best Lemon Bars” recipe is my personal favorite variation. The bright flavor comes from Meyer lemon juice and zest, and just the right amount of sugar to create a tangy-sweet sensation.

Meyer lemons have a unique lemon essence. They are slightly less acidic than standard lemons, with a light floral after taste.  If you can’t find them, it’s ok to use regular lemons.

How To Make: The Best Lemon Bars Recipe

My surprise ingredient is a layer of white chocolate chips pressed into the crust. The little pops of sweet creamy white chocolate are a lovely contrast to the acidic citrus layer.

Just press them into The Best Lemon Bars crust, then pour the filling over the top.

After baking, let The Best Lemon Bars cool completely before cutting.

Then slice them into squares or rectangular bars, and sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar.

    I regularly make lemon drizzle cake and will definitely try this it looks yummy! One thing though… I am allergic to all types of chocolate, do I have to use it for this?
