Graham Cracker Lemon Bars

Graham Cracker Lemon Bars
The graham cracker crust is what sets these lemon bars apart from other recipes you’ve tried. Not only does it provide a solid base for the gooey topping, but it also adds a great crunchy texture to the dish that’ll make it impossible to resist going for seconds.
  • Yield: Serves 6–8
  • Cook Time: 6 minutes
  • Chill Time: 2 hours


  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon plus 1 cup lemon juice
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker crust
  • Confectioners’ sugar


  1. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and eggs. Pour in the lemon juice and melted butter and stir to combine.
  2. Microwave, checking every minute and stirring with a spoon, until the lemon curd coats the back of the spoon, about 6 minutes. Pour into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Remove from the freezer and sprinkle with the lemon zest and as much confectioners’ sugar as you desire. Slice into squares and serve on a pretty platter.
