Recipe For Lemon Bars with White Chocolate Chips

I’m a lucky girl!

Lemon Bars w/White Chocolate Chips

I came home Christmas night with a bunch of Meyer lemons. Not wasting anytime, I jumped on Twitter and asked if anyone had any killer recipes using lemons.

You gotta love Twitter!

Krista from The Doubled Dipped Life rose to the call and shared a recipe a friend had given to her. She loved it.

It was a lemon bar with a twist!

Lemon Bars w/White Chocolate Chips

It had white chocolate chips in the bars.

White chocolate and lemon are a match made in heaven, who knew?

Lemon Bars w/White Chocolate Chips

The Hubby wrinkled his nose when I told him I was making lemon bars. He’s a chocolate kind of guy.

He ate a 1/4 of the pan. Guess he liked them!

 I think you will too!

I know my friend Barbara did!

Lemon Bars w/White Chocolate Chips

White Chocolate Chip Lemon Bars

(printable Recipe)

1 1/4 cups flour -divided
1 cup sugar-divided
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white chips
2 eggs slightly beaten
The zest and juice from one lemon
Powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Stir together 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture onto the bottom of 9-inch baking pan.

3. Bake 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chips.

4. Stir together eggs, lemon juice, lemon peel, remaining 1/4 cup flour and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in medium bowl; carefully pour over chips and crust.
5. Bake 10 minutes (see note) or until set (you can touch center and it's springy). Cool in pan on wire rack; sift with powdered sugar when completely cool. Cut into bars.

My Notes. Recipe said to bake the bars 10 minutes or until set. My first batch took 20 minutes to set. I made them again, a double batch, and they took 30 minutes to set. I say start with 10 or 15 minutes, and check them. You can always add more time, but you cant take it away!

I am absolutely crazy about lemon desserts and this sounds wonderful! I came across a recipe for limoncello using meyer lemons. If I ever had enough meyer lemons I would probably try my hand at that. Happy new year!!

I just wandered over from Miranda's, and what a nice place to start! Hubby loves white chocolate...

White choc is my favorite. When I scan the dessert menus at restaurants, a white chocolate alternative causes me to weaken and order away. White choc in lemon bars....even better.

Love the sound of lemon bars with white chocolate... so decadent! I think I could also finish 1/4 of the pan... or maybe the whole thing? :)
