Lime Bars

These are one of the best things I have ever made. Honestly. They turned out so wonderful & were absolutely delicious. I love this recipe. I think I might have added more zest than the recipe asks for & I added a drop of "electric green" food coloring (which gave it that nice "Shrek" green color). Other than that, this recipe is perfect. I highly recommend it.
So good!!

Lime Bars

For crust:

1 cup butter, softened

2 cups flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Dash salt

For filling:

6 eggs

3 cups sugar

1/3 cup flour

10 tablespoons fresh lime juice

3 teaspoons lime zest

Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam - or line with foil & spray.

For crust: Cream together the butter and sugar. Add flour and salt until completely combined. Press dough into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes on until light golden brown.

For filling: Whisk together eggs & sugar. Add flour & combine until smooth. Stir in juice & zest. Pour into pan with crust. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the middle no longer looks liquidy.

Let cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

*These must cool completely before cutting otherwise the filling will not be firm enough and you will have a mess....a delicious mess, but a mess!

These look so good. I love lime anything, so I'll have to give them a go next month.
