One Great Recipe * Lemon Lime Bars

{Photo & Styling by me ~ Sweet Life Photography}

As my long time readers have noticed I love most things lemon and lime. With spring just around the corner with hopes of fresh green grass and tiny leaf buds in our hearts a lemon lime bar will re-freshen the soul. This recipe is a refined combination of some of the recipes my grandma, mom and I have used over the years. Enjoy!

Lemon Lime Bars
  • 2 cups cake flour (key to a flaky crust)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tbs flour
  • zest of 1 lg lemon & 1 lg lime
  • juice of one lg lemon & 1 lg lime
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

In large mixing bowl combine cake flour, salt, powder sugar. With pastry blender or fork mix in butter. Press into a 9x13 pan and bake for 15- 20 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown. While crust is cooking in medium bowl lightly beat eggs then add sugar, lemon & lime juice, lemon & lime zest, heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of flour. Whisk together. Pour over hot crust when crust is finished. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees until the middle is set-up. Sift powdered sugar over the top. Makes about 24 bars.
