Ingredients

  • Crust Ingredients
  • --------------------
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • --------------------------------------

  • ----------------------
  • 2 eggs (well beaten)
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (I used the juice from 3 lemons)
  • ---------------------------------------------
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar (to sprinkle on the top of bars after they are cool)

Instructions

  1. In a mixer blend together 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. And then cut in 1/2 cup of softened butter.
  2. Press this mixture firmly in the bottom of a 8"x 8" baking dish.
  3. Bake this crust 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. While the crust is baking you can mix the lemon topping. Beat 2 eggs in a bowl.
  4. Then mix in 2 tablespoons of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
  5. Then add 1 cup of sugar.
  6. Now you can add the 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  7. Now pour this mixture over the baked crust. Bake 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. It will be golden brown when you take it out of the oven.
  8. Now let the bars cool completely and then sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
  9. Now the bars are finished, but you will want to wait to cut then for a few hours to let them set up.
