Rosemary Meyer Lemon Bars

Jane Bruce


For the crust

  • 1/2 cup  unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup  confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon  chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon  lemon zest
  • 1 cup  flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon  salt

For the filling

  • 1/4  cup  flour
  • 3/4 cups  sugar
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • eggs
  • 2 teaspoons  lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup  Meyer lemon juice

Rosemary perfectly complements tart Meyer lemons in this simple recipe. If you like a 1:2 crust to filling ratio, try doubling the filling and baking just a tad longer.

For the crust

Grease an 8-by-8-inch cake pan, or line with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars until smooth; add in chopped rosemary and lemon zest.

Carefully mix in the flour and salt until just combined. Press into cake pan and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until sides are browned.

For the filling

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and sugar.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, lemon juice, and zest until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients to wet, stirring until combined, then pour over the hot crust and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, until the center is set but still gooey. Let rest, slice, and serve with a dusting of confectioners' sugar.
