Sweets for Mom – and one last reminder!

What desserts remind you of springtime?  Most people would say lemony ones.  And I agree.

One of my favorite desserts to make is lemon bars.  They’re a crowd pleaser, and a little goes a long way…one small bar is like a big burst of springtime in your mouth.  Plus, they’re pretty! 🙂  It’s such a simple and easy sweet treat to make, and the ingredients are usually on hand.

Make these for your Mom this weekend – she’ll love you even more than she does today.

And of course, one last reminder – please check out the goodies up for auction on Bloggers Bake For Hope and bid before Midnight tonight.  Get some sweet treats delivered right to your doorstep while helping a GREAT cause!

Lemon Bars
from Allrecipes

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar, divided
2 1/4 cups AP flour, divided
4 eggs
2 lemons, juiced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl, blend butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar.  Press mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 pan.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

In another bowl, combine remaining flour and sugar.  Whisk in eggs and lemon juice.  Pour over the baked crust.  Bake for another 20 minutes.

Cut when cooled completely and sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on top.
