Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • A pinch of salt

For the Filling:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender buds

For the Topping:

  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Directions

Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). While it’s heating up, line your 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides for easy removal.

Prepare the Crust

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, and a pinch of salt. Cut in the cold, cubed butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press this mixture evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan.

Bake the Crust

Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until it’s golden brown.

Mix the Filling

While the crust is baking, whisk together the eggs, 1 1/4 cups of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, and dried lavender buds until well combined.

Layer and Bake

Pour the lemon-lavender mixture over the hot baked crust, and return the pan to the oven. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is set and the edges are lightly golden.

Cool and Serve

Allow your Lemon Bars to cool in the pan for a while. Then, using the parchment paper overhangs, lift the bars out of the pan. Dust the top with powdered sugar, slice into squares, and serve!

Recipe Notes

If you can’t find dried lavender buds, you can use lavender extract for that special lavender flavor. Just add a few drops to your mixture. These bars taste best when eaten within a day or two because the crispy crust might not stay as crispy. To save any extras, keep them in a closed container in the fridge.
