- 1 cup butter
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2/3 cups confectionary sugar (plus more for dusting)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 4 whole eggs, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan.
To make crust:
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and confectioner's sugar. Cut in butter until combined and crumbly. Press crust mixture into bottom of pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
To make topping:
While crust is baking, prepare topping. In a larger bowl, add sugar, flour, and baking powder. Then add slightly beaten eggs and lemon juice. Mix well and pour on top of warm baked crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
When cool, dust with confectioner's sugar and refrigerate. Cut into bars.
Makes 2 dozen.
(If you only want to make a small batch, this works great cut in half and baked in a 8x8 baking pan!)
