EatingWell's Lemon Squares

I tried this recipe from my Eating Well Comfort Foods Made Healthy cookbook, but you can also find the recipe online right here, at the Eating Well website.  It's a great recipe!  I have always made a full fat, calorie-laden lemon bar, and the Dishwasher didn't even notice that the recipe wasn't the same!  I used a 9 inch square pan because I don't have an 8-inch pan, so my lemon squares came out a little flatter than they should.  These bars have just the right balance of tartness and sweetness, which is hard to come by in a lemon square.  I used all purpose flour as we didn't have any whole wheat pastry flour hanging around...add that to my shopping list too!  Next time I'd like to try this with limes or key limes...or even try the shortbread crust with a different topping.  Pecan squares would float my boat!


  1. I just discovered this lovely blog! Congrats on these lemon squares...they look divine. Always my favorite treat.

  2. I love, love, LOVE lemon squares. I'm going to attempt this recipe with gluten free four mix. They have always been a favorite summer treat!
