  4. Press out the crust evenly into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes

  5. In one bowl, beat the 4 eggs until they are smooth. Add the 2 cups of sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, and the 6 T of lemon juice. Mix that together.

  6. In a separate bowl, mix together ¼ cup of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking soda.

  7. Add that mixture to the bowl with the eggs, mix it well, then pour it evenly over the baked crust.

  8. Put that in the oven for 25 minutes or until the filling is baked to your preference.

  9. When that is cooked to your liking, take it out of the oven and leave it in the pan for about 15 minutes. After, take the lemon bars out of the pan, but remaining in the aluminum foil and let that cool for about 15 more minutes.
