Ascend® Lemon or Lime Bars Filling


  1. For filling, whisk together the sugar flour, eggs and juice until the sugar is dissolved. Allow the topping to sit for about 10 minutes before whisking together well again and pouring over the baked shortbread base.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for about another 20- 25 minutes or until the top is slightly browned and the custard appears to be set. The bottom should just be beginning to brown slightly at the top edges. Cool completely.
  3. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.
