Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes • Makes: 24 bars


3 grapefruit (any variety)
2-3/4 cups Schnucks granulated sugar, divided
2-1/4 cups Schnucks all-purpose flour, divided
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold Schnucks unsalted butter (1-1/2 sticks), cut into small pieces
5 Schnucks large eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 13 x 9-inch metal baking pan with aluminum foil so that foil extends over short sides of pan. From grapefruit, grate 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons peel and squeeze juice. Strain juice to remove any seeds and pulp. You will need 3/4 cup juice.

2. In food processor with knife blade attached, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1-1/2 cups flour, salt and 2 teaspoons grated peel; pulse several times to combine. Add butter and pulse until pea sized crumbs form. Pour mixture into prepared pan; press evenly onto bottom of pan. Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool crust completely on wire rack.

3. In large bowl, with whisk, lightly beat eggs. Add remaining 2-1/4 cups granulated sugar, 3/4 cup flour, 1 tablespoon grated peel and 3/4 cup juice. Pour mixture over crust. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely on wire rack. Use foil to lift out of pan. Peel off foil. Cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 6 pieces. Dust bars with powdered sugar.
