For the crust – 
1/2 cup butter, softened  (not melted)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar

For the lemon filling – 
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. spray 8×8 pan with a generous amount of baking spray.

To make the crust – 
Mix the butter, flour and sugar till well combined. If you’re using unsalted butter, please add a pinch of salt.

Spread this dough evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until set and just beginning to turn color.

To make the filling – 
Prepare the filling while the crust is baking.

Using an electric whisk at medium speed, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and flour. 

Pour this mix over the baked crust and bake for 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown. Don’t overbake or underbake it either. If underbaked, the lemon filling won’t set.

Let it cool completely.

    Lemon Bars are one of my all time favorite desserts. I’m trying to master a gluten-free version now! Excellent choice for the SRC!
