Lemon Bars

Posted on February 1, 2012 by prairiemoonquilts in Recipes

I know there are many many variations on making Lemon Bars, and I’ve tried several of them, but this one I got from my friend, Ceil, and it’s my very favorite, so now it’s the only one I ever use.

I take these to Sunday dinner every so often, and they disappear in a hurry. We all like these, mainly because they’re not too lemony, and they’re more buttery . . .

Mix together:

1 cup flour

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

Press in an ungreased 8″ x 8″ pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Beat together:

2 eggs

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Pour over hot crust. Bake 25 minutes longer.

Cool completely. Dust the top with powdered sugar, cut into squares, and serve.
