The Snicket Family’s Favorite Lemony Bars

The Snicket Family’s Favorite Lemony Bars
(with an Unfortunately sour taste)

1 cup = 2 sticks Butter
2 cups granulated Sugar
2-¼ cups White Lilly Self-Rising Flour
6 Tablespoons ReaLemon OR the juice of 2 lemons
4 eggs
Probably some tears

How to:

350 degree oven.
Pastry-cut (like you’re making a pie crust) butter, ½ cup sugar and 2 cups flour together. Press into 13x9, prick with fork. Bake 15-20 minutes.

Whisk 4 eggs, 1-½ cup sugar, ¼ cup flour, 2 lemons juiced/6T ReaLemon juice. (Add yellow food coloring, if you like). Pour over crust.

Bake 20 minutes.

 *You can make them into Lime bars by using green food coloring, and changing the ReaLemon to 2T of lime juice.

in the future, you stumble through explaining your lemon bar recipe, though you know it by heart - the most beautiful girl in the world sits on your counter, hair drawn into a messy bun, swinging her legs while sipping hot tea. she smiles at you, softer than the morning light through your kitchen window, and you nearly drop the flaky shortbread crust. you figure it’s worth it when she laughs and leans down to kiss your forehead, smudging flour across your neck.
