Delicous Lemon Bars

Standard

Do you love lemon curd? Try out this bar recipe I found on allrecipes.com- it turns out great every time and it always a hit with potlucks. I usually omit the nuts with no problem.

Lemon Curd Bars
 
   
“This bar has the two crusts as requested, and has a strong tangy lemon taste, so much better than most of the lemon bar recipes out there due to the lemon curd and added coconut!”
Ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 (10 ounce) jar lemon curd
2/3 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup toasted and chopped almonds
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter. Add the flour, sugar and baking soda. Mix until the mixture forms coarse crumbs
3. Pat 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of one 9×13 inch baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.
4. Spread the lemon curd over the baked layer. To the remaining 1/3 of crumb mixture add the coconut and the almonds. Sprinkle over the top of the lemon curd.
5. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake bars for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
