8) Gluten-Free Lemon Bars                                           (8 of 10)



We can’t resist a frosty glass of homemade lemonade on a hot summer day, but these tangy lemon bars are the next best thing.


1 2/3 cups gluten-free flour

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Zest of 1 lemon

9 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

4 eggs

1 cup white sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

2/3 cup lemon juice



Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease or spray an 8-inch cooking pan, then line with waxed paper for easy removal.

Prepare the crust using 1 cup of flour, plus confectioners’ sugar, salt and lemon zest. Mix well, then add butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of the 8-inch pan and bake for 15 minutes.

Make the custard layer by mixing the remaining ingredients together and pouring them over the cooled crust. Bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and serve chilled. Top with confectioners sugar when serving.
