Lemon Bars

Be sure to let cool for several hours before serving - these bars need the time to set.

Lemon Bars

2 cups flour
1 cup butter, room temp
1/3 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Cream together flour and butter. Press into a 9x13 greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.
Filling: 4 eggs, room temp
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
¼ cup flour
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
zest of half a lemon

Slowly beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients, one at a time, and blend well. Pour filling mixtures over hot crust and return to oven. Turn oven down to 325 degrees and bake for 25 min. Completely cool and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar & serve ~ Yummy! This is my favorite treat!
