Gaines always dreamt of having her own cooking show and finally made it happen with Magnolia Table with Joanna. The simple recipes she makes for the TV show are things she and her family love to eat. Food brings together friends and family and Gaines inspires all her fans with every episode to cook and share some of that love.

How to make Joanna Gaines’ Lemon Bars recipe?

The official Instagram account for Magnolia Network recently shared a Lemon Bar recipe that Gaines made in Episode 3 of Season 3 called “A Light Lunch.” On Magnolia’s official website, the recipe says the lemon bars would be ready to eat in 2 hours but with only 25 minutes of active time.

One tip that is noted before fans start baking is to make the “bars in a dish made from glass or other nonreactive material.” The reason behind this is that if you use aluminum or something similar the lemon will react to it.

To start off, the oven needs to be preheated to 350°F. In a bowl, you have to mix 2 cups of flour, 1/2 pound of melted salted butter, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Gaines calls to only “mixing as little as possible” to have a flakier crust. Once this is set, you bake for about 20. minutes and the edges are lightly browned.

While the mix is baking, in another bowl you whisk 2 cups of granulated sugar, 4 eggs, and 5 tablespoons of lemon juice. Once the crust is done, you pour the lemon mixture over the crust and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes. When the baking is done, you dust the top with powdered sugar and cut it into bars once it’s cooled down.
