Step 1

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with Reynolds Kitchens® Parchment Paper, extending parchment paper about 1 inch above rim of pan; set aside.

Step 2

BEAT crust ingredients in a large bowl on low speed until mixture is crumbly; press mixture evenly in bottom parchment-lined pan.

Step 3

BAKE 20 minutes or until light brown; remove pan from oven.

Step 4

COMBINE filling ingredientsin a medium bowl until well blended; pour mixture evenly over warm baked crust.

Step 5

BAKE 15 to 20 minutes longer or until filling is set and bars are brown around the edges. Cool completely on a wire rack. Use edges of parchment lining to lift bars from pan onto a cutting board. Pull back edges of parchment; sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Cut into bars.

Baking Tip:

Cut out decorative stencils using Reynolds Kitchens® Parchment Paper. Just before cutting, arrange stencils over surface of lemon bars. Sprinkle powdered sugar over stencils. Remove stencils.
