White Chocolate Lemon Bars

This is a treasured recipe from a very good friend.
One of those on-line, I've-never-met-in-real-life-friends.
One of those, I-don't-think-we-would've-been-friends-if-we-didn't-meet-online friends.
But she's one of the best women I know.

You know what I mean?

She was kind enough to share her secret recipe for her amazing lemon bars. You've gotta try these! I'm not a huge white chocolate fan, so I hesitated, but the white chocolate matches perfectly with the tart lemon.

White Chip Lemon Bars

1 1/4 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup white chips

2 eggs slightly beaten

The zest and juice from one lemon

Powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Stir together 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture onto the bottom of 9-inch baking pan.

3. Bake 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chips.

4. Stir together eggs, lemon juice, lemon peel, remaining 1/4 cup flour and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in medium bowl; carefully pour over chips and crust.

5. Bake 10 minutes or until set (you can touch center and it's springy). Cool in pan on wire rack; sift with powdered sugar when completely cool. Cut into bars.


Trust me. These will be gone quickly!
