Lemon Bars

Yield: 12 squares
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon peel, if desired
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In small bowl, mix flour, butter and powdered sugar. Press in ungreased 8" pan, building up 1/2" edge; bake 20 minutes.
  3. In small bowl, beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust.
  4. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until almost no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar.
I liked these, but Brian and Matt loved them. They gobbled them down so that they were gone the day after I made them.
