Easy Lemon Bars

Here’s an easy, fun and yummy snack for your Sowing Seeds of Grace event!

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 15-oz box lemon cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 – 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice
  • Optional: 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Prep Time: 15 minutes; Bake Time: 26-28 minutes

Preheat oven to 350* and grease or spray a 9×13″ baking pan, or line with parchment paper.

For the crust: In a large bowl, mix the dry lemon cake mix with the melted butter, egg, and lemon extract until well blended. The batter will be very thick. Press this mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking pan.

For the filling: In a small bowl, blend together the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon zest (if using). Pour this mixture evenly over the cake mix batter layer in the bottom of the pan.

Bake for 26-28 minutes, until the lemon filling is set. Let cool completely in pan, then dust with powdered sugar. Cut into bars or squares.
