What’s part cookie, part cake, and 100% tangy, lemony deliciousness? These scrumptious, sweet-tart lemon bars! Dinner Bell Unsalted Butter gives them an irresistible richness — and freshly squeezed lemon juice adds a sunshiny brightness. Prep is only 15 minutes, so they’re easy to whip up for weeknight treats, last-minute visits from the neighbors, and laid-back weekends with the family.

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, or in large bowl with hand-held mixer, beat butter, sugar and lemon zest until smooth and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Scrape down bowl and add eggs and yolk one at a time, mixing after each. Add lemon juice and mix until combined.
  4. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder and add to wet ingredients. Mix on low until mixture is smooth.
  5. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and bake until edges just turn golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely.
  6. Whisk together powdered sugar, lemon zest and enough lemon juice to make a thick but pourable glaze. Pour over cooled bars and let sit for 30 minutes to set, or chill in fridge for 15 minutes. Slice and serve.
