Whole Meyer Lemon Bars - Lemon Week 2011
Whole Meyer Lemon Bars

It's Day #2 of Lemon Week! justJenn and I are making five days of lemon recipes with my dad's Meyer lemons. I have about 10 minutes to write this post so I'll just say: Crust. Lemon. Done. Yum.

Whole Meyer Lemon Bars - Lemon Week 2011
David Lebovitz created this recipe using one whole lemon. A shortbread crust is topped with a food processor mixture of whole lemon, eggs, corn starch, sugar, and butter. I used a Meyer lemon, but David prefers the regular lemon (I only have Meyers in the house since I get them free from my folk's backyard! :)

Come back tomorrow for another lemon recipe!

David Lebovitz - Whole Lemon Bars
My adaptations: I used a meyer lemon and I removed most of the pith before putting it into the food processor. I know that runs against the "whole lemon" part of this...but it's just what I did. I also think I should have baked the crust a little longer to get a darker brown like David's.
Pin It!

I saw these on David Lebovitz too, yours look wonderful! I like my lemon bars super tart, and using the whole lemon seems like the best way to get a very lemon-y flavour. Love your photos too :)

Thanks for sharing this lemony recipe; I've been on the lookout for a lemon bar recipe recently with spring creeping up on us...it seems like the right type of recipe to bake!

What exactly is the difference between a Meyer lemon and a "regular" lemon?

These look SO good. I just made a lemon truffle pie over the weekend with Meyer lemons. It was awesome. Here's a link if you're interested:

I actually like your lemon bars with the light crust much more than David Lebovitz's dark crust. The light crust makes the lemon bars seem light an airy, which is appropriate. To me lemon bars project a light and airy feeling :) Awesome job!

Been out of town for a couple of weeks and thereby out of touch... Gettin' back in the swing of things... Missed your blog!

These look yummy! Do you ever think you'll open a bakery?

That looks divine! I've never had lemon bars before, however.
