Light and Creamy Lemon Bars

This recipe comes from our friend at What’s for Dinner, Gena? – who loves dairy foods and got creative with cottage cheese for us this month! These lemon bars are a fun twist on a traditional favorite!

Ingredients:
Makes 24 bars

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 cups flour

  • juice and zest of 2 lemons (check for seeds!)
  • 3 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  3. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Bake for 20 min or until light golden brown. Let cool.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare filling. Add cottage cheese into a blender. Pulse until smooth.
  5. Add eggs and pulse just long enough to mix with cottage cheese.
  6. Add cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Pulse or mix on low speed until ingredients are smooth.
  7. Pour onto crust and bake at 350° F for 40 minutes or until set in the middle.
