Creamy Lemon Squares

A few weeks ago I made lunch for my husband’s staff. I do this every few months for them and everyone enjoys it. I enjoy cooking it, and they all enjoy a home cooked meal that they did not have to make.

When I do this I usually take the opportunity to try a new dessert recipe.

I have a lemon bar recipe that I love, but Martha Stewart has a recipe for Cream Lemon Squares that I have wanted to make for quite some time. I knew by looking at the recipe that it was a richer and fancier version than my regular recipe.

I decided our office lunch would be a perfect time to try it.

This recipe was so good. I actually made two pans, the regular version I am posting today, and a gluten free version, which I will post on my allergy site soon.

I sent these to the office along with the meal and everyone enjoyed them. If you enjoy lemon as much as I do, then this is a recipe that you need to try.

  1. Those bars look so good! Almost custard-y. I’ll definitely have to try these. My lemon bars are more dense, and I bet these would make a welcome change.

  2. I loooooove lemon bars. I am drooling!

  3. Oh my! These are definitely a must make!

  4. These look delicious! I love normal lemon bars, but creamy ones sound even better.

  5. Beautiful! And I really love that plate! Is there a story behind it?? :)

    • @tammy l, Oh I wish I had a nice story behind the plate, but I don’t. I found it recently on clearance for just a few dollars. I loved the look of it, since it looked “old”. I knew it would be perfect for photos, so I decided to buy it and I am glad I did. It is so pretty I love it.

    These look delicious. Will be trying these. But any suggestions for using up the egg whites?

  7. These look so delicious. I love lemon bars. Beautiful photo, love the spots of powdered sugar placed so perfectly.

  8. Oh my goodness, my mouth was watering as I was reading this! I can’t wait to try it.

    Best wishes and happy Friday,
    Natasha.

  9. Lemon Bars are my favorites!!!! I hope I didn’t ruin my laptop by drooling on it!

  13. These sound wonderful and easy, but what are the baking temperatures?

  14. YUM! Love lemon bars!!

  15. Hi Lynn
    I tried baking this lemon square but it had a lot of cracks/curdle. Is this because of the oven temperature? Should i reduce temperature to 160 C. Pls. advice.

    • I have never had that problem, so I am not sure, but reducing the oven temperature would be the first thing I would try. I hope it helps and I am sorry that you are having problems with the recipe.

  16. Do you really need 3/4 C lemon juice? Compared to many other lemon square recipes, that just sounds like a lot of liquid.

    Thanks. BTW – I love your Website. I use it all the time.
