So we decided to resurface our hardwood floors that were under our carpet. The carpet has had it's turn in our home with 4 kids. So in it's tired state it was off to the dump. We have a friend that is a Hardwood Floor expert and he graciously (with some prodding) agreed to help.
I should have taken a picture of these sweet treats, but I'll do it next time. I'm sure you all know what lemon bars look like anyway. But seriously...these are stinkin' awesome!
Lemon-Butter Bars Crust
1 1/3 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
2 T flour
1/4 t baking powder
3 T lemon juice, please juice your own lemons here!
Heat oven to 350.
Combine all crust ingredients. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is crumbly ~ about 2-3 minutes. Press on bottom on 8" square baking pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Pour filling over hot crust. Continue baking for 18-20 minutes or until filling is set.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cool. Cut into 16 bars.
