Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees to start your gooey lemon bars.
  2. Grease or spray with a non-stick cooking spray, an 8×11 inch or a 9-inch square baking pan.
  3. Cream butter and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Gradually mix in flour, cornstarch, and milk until well- blended.
  4. Press dough into the bottom of the prepared pan for your lemon curd bars.
  5. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown.
