From the author –  My mother had some good recipes and most of them she didn’t write down. I just learned from experience while watching her (when she would let me in the kitchen!) These Lemon Bars are a tradition in my family at Christmas time. The recipe can be doubled for larger crowds.

Ingredients

  • Dough Ingredients:
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup confectionary sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
  • Pinch of salt

  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Confectionary sugar for decorating topping
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350.
