Ooie Gooie Lemon Bars

5 stars

This recipe is super easy and full of lemon flavor.  Ooie Gooie tartness best describes these lemon bars. .  They are so good that while my mother and my grandmother was at my house they ate a few before leaving and my grandmother could not stop thinking about them, so she had to call to get the recipe so she can make for her church group.  :) You can also make this recipe as lime bars, just substitute the lemons for limes and also good idea to add about 2 drops of green food coloring.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 2 lemon zest
  • powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/12 cups sugar and 5 tbs flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice and zest. Pour over the baked crust.
  4. Bake for an additional 25 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top when cooled, and cut into squares.
