The first step to make these Lemon Cookie Bars was to prepare the cookie batter.  To do this I dumped 2 large eggs, some shortening and a bit of vanilla into a medium mixing bowl.

Then I used an electric hand mixer to blend these ingredients together before measuring in some brown sugar and some granulated sugar.

I used the electric hand mixer again to cream the ingredients together.

Then I added in some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend, baking soda, xanthan gum, and a bit of salt.  These ingredients were blended in with the electric hand mixer until the batter was creamy.

After beating the batter I greased a 9″ x 13″ baking pan and scraped the batter into it.

I spread the batter evenly in the pan before placing it into a preheated 350F oven for about 15 minutes or until it was light golden brown.

While the base was cooking it was time to make the lemon filling.  To start I cracked 4 large eggs into a mixing bowl.

Then I used a whisk to beat the eggs together until they were frothy before adding in some granulated sugar, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend and a bit of margarine.  I again used the whisk to combine.

I zested some lemon and squeezed out some lemon juice.  I added both to the bowl and used the whisk to combine.

When the ingredients were well combined I poured the lemon mixture over the warm crust.  I returned the pan to the 350 oven for about 30 minutes.  Until it was a deep golden brown.

The cookie crust will now be on the top of the lemon mixture.

If you need a bit of sunshine in your day these Gluten Free Lemon Cookie Bars will refresh your taste buds and brighten your day!
