Lime Bars

I thought since it's St. Patrick's Day this would be quite the tasty and fun treat to make! I actually got the idea off of Pinterest, but I used my lemon bars recipe that I posted about a year ago. It's a super easy treat to make!

What you need:


2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 sticks or 1 cup butter (softened)

Whip softened butter and then add powdered sugar and flour. Mix thoroughly, like pie dough. Pat into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until slightly brown around the edges.

Filling (meanwhile mix)

2 cups sugar
4 beaten eggs
Juice of 6-7 limes or 6-8 tablespoons lime juice, depending on how citrisy you like
4 tbs. flour
Pinch of salt
Green food coloring (add until you hit the green color you prefer)

After crust is baked, pour filling mixture over the crust and bake for 20 minutes more, at 350 degrees. Let cool and then sprinkle with powdered sugar!
