Lemon Lime Bars

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
12 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
14 teaspoon salt
4 extra-large eggs, room temperature
1 23 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (1-2 lemons)
12 tablespoon grated lime zest (1-2 limes)
23 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
23 cup all-purpose flour


Line a 9x13 pan with foil, leaving an overhang around the edges. Spray the foil. Prepare the crust: Cream the butter and sugar until light. Combine the flour and salt. Add to the butter mixture until just mixed. Dump onto a well-floured board and gather into a ball. Flatten the dough and press it into the prepared pan, covering the bottom and a 1/2-inch edge on all sides. Chill for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350F Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes, until very lightly browned. Allow to cool on a wire rack, leaving the oven on. Prepare the filling: Whisk together the eggs, sugar, zests, juice, and flour. Pour into the crust and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the filling is set. Let cool to room temperature.
