I love cooking, especially desserts. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes, you name it. This recipe is a bit unusual for me, as it’s very lemony and very sweet, but I quite like it.

A sweet, tangy dessert bar.

Ingredients

    Crust

  • Powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grab a 12x18 cake pan or jelly roll pan.
  2. Cream together butter and 1 cup granulated sugar. Slowly add salt and flour, mixing until a soft dough forms.
  3. Press dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until slightly brown on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  5. Reduce oven temperature 325ºF.
  6. Blend eggs and 1 1/2 cups sugar until fluffy and smooth. Add lemon juice, lemonade powder and food coloring until desired color. Add flour slowly, and continue stirring until well blended. Note: This might take a few minutes. Mixture will be thin and runny.
