GLUTEN FREE--LEMON BUTTER BARS

GLUTEN FREE--LEMON BUTTER BARS

I have been trying to locate more gluten free recipes. I am going to start trying to have more of a gluten free lifestyle myself. So stay tuned and I will have some original recipes of my own soon.

Crust:
1 cup Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar

Filling:
3/4 cup sugar
2 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Eggs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

Topping:
Powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all crust ingredients in small bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom of ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except powdered sugar in small bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Pour filling over hot, partially baked crust. Continue baking for 18 to 20 minutes or until filling is set.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm and again when cool. Cut into bars.

Gluten-Free Flour Blend:
To make flour blend, combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.

*This recipe was developed using alternative flours and other products labeled as "gluten-free". To date, the FDA and USDA have not defined the term "gluten-free." Therefore, to the best of our knowledge, the ingredients in our Process Cheese (example: American Process Cheese) and our natural dairy products (examples: natural cheese and butter) do not contain gluten.
