I’m pretty much in denial that we’re already 1/2 through April! If your Easter Bunny is anything like my Easter Bunny, she hasn’t done her shopping yet.

Here are some great coupons that she (or he) could find very helpful in filling those Easter baskets.

Lemon Bars Recipe

by Jill Bender on April 15, 2014

lemon barsOver Spring Break we went to Arizona to have some family time with my sister and brother-in-law. While enjoying the beautiful spring Arizona weather I spotted a lemon tree in the neighbor’s backyard which hung largely into theirs with what looked like hundreds of lemons. We don’t have fresh fruit trees in Colorado so I was obsessed.

I squeezed fresh lemonade almost every day, used lemon juice in my water and made lemon bars from scratch.

These lemon bars are so moist and lusciously lemon and they were delicious enough to eat for breakfast. So I did.

Lemon Bars Recipe

Here is a printable Lemon Bars Recipe.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 sticks butter, at room temperature, plus more for greasing


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

lemon bars2


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease 9x13x2-inch pan.

Make the crust by combining flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a large bowl.  Cut in the butter to make a crumbly mixture.  Press the mixture into the prepared pan.  You may need to dip your fingers into a little flour or confectioners’ sugar to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.

To make the filling, mix the eggs, granulated sugar, flour, and lemon juice.  Pour this over the baked crust and bake for 25 minutes longer.  Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired, when the bars are done.
