This morning, I was reading my friend and fellow blogger, Pearl's blog ( http://pearl-whyyoulittle.blogspot.com/) and she mentioned Lemon Bars. I immediately had an intense yearning for a lemon bar. I haven't had one in years. I used to make them often but somehow forgot about how good they are. The mention of them set off a loud ping in my brain and now I have to make some!
2 c flour 1/2 c powdered sugar 1/2 c butter
Mix together and press firmly into 9 x 13 pan. Bake 20 minutes.
Combine in a bowl:
4 beaten eggs 1/3 c lemon juice 2 c sugar
1 T flour 1 t baking powder
Mix together until frothy, pour over baked crust and return to oven for 25 minutes.
Cool and cut in squares. Sprinkle with powered sugar, if desired.
