  • ⅓ cup butter at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅛ cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, and set it aside for now.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream the butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy. Slowly add the flour and mix until the flour is well incorporated and dough has formed. Place the dough in the baking pan and press down with your fingers to cover the entire bottom of the baking pan.
  3. Place the baking pan into the oven and bake the crust for about 15-18 minutes until the crust starts to turn brown at the top. Remove the crust from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. Next, add the Meyer lemon juice and orange juice. Slowly whisk in the flour until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  5. Pour the lemon citrus filling over the warm crust. Place the baking pan back into the oven and bake for another 15 minutes until the filling has set in the center.
  6. Remove the Meyer lemon citrus bars from the oven and allow them to cool completely to room temperature before slicing.
  7. Serve the Meyer lemon citrus bars topped with powdered sugar.
