Lemon Bars (gluten-free)

Lemon Bars (gluten-free)

Classical lemon bars get a makeover with a gluten free flour.  Four out of five members of my family declared them perfect.  I made two batches and we took them on a picnic with us.  I bet some very happy ants are still eating our crumbs out at the park.


For the crust
1 cup gluten free flour (we used Namaste)
1/2 cup stick butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar

For the lemon bar
1 cup granulated sugar
zest of one lemon
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
Powdered sugar for decoration

1.  Heat oven to 350F
2.  Lay square pan with parchment paper
3.  Mix flour, butter and powdered sugar.  Press in a pan building up a bit of an edge.

4.  Bake crust for 20 minutes. 
5.  Beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on high about 3-5 minutes until bubbly.

6.  Pour over crust.
7.  Bake 23-25 minutes.  The only way to test if it’s ready it touch the top with the index finger and see how it reacts to the touch.  The indentation should disappear after your lift the finger.  Sometimes I am just not sure and since it contains raw eggs I need to be sure, so I just leave it in the oven for 5-10 minutes more with the oven turned off.  
8.  Cool in pan.  Cut into squares.  And dust with powdered sugar.
