-2 tbsp Flour

Using Vanilla Wafers….
Throw a bunch into your food processor and crumble them up. I didn’t keep track of how many wafers you need, so just throw a bunch in there and then measure out 1-1/2 cups of wafer crumbles.
In a mixing bowl, combine the wafer crumbs with 2 tbsp of Sugar…
With 5 tbsp of melted butter.
Stir it around until the mixture become “crumbly”…
And then press the crust into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes to set the crust.
In another mixing bowl, add in 1 cup of sugar…
Juice of 1 lemon and ½ tsp of Lemon Zest…
2 tbsp Flour and ½ tbsp of Vanilla Extract…
And take 2 eggs and beat them up until they are nice and fluffy.
Whisk it all together and pour the filling over the crust.
Bake the lemon bars for 25-30 minutes or until the center is set. Let the lemon bars cool on a wire rack until they reach room temperature and then refrigerate until you are ready to serve. Dust with powdered sugar as a garnish and enjoy!
