Are you hungry for lemon bars?

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.

Oh Lord, do they sound good. My favorite desserts contain lemon. Any kind will do. Thanks for the recipe. Lord help me. It's the last thing I need and the first thing I want.

Sorry about that!!!


They certainly are delicious, though, aren't they?!

Oh I love lemon bars; I can't eat wheat now, wonder if a substitute would work, I used to make these all the time years ago.

I am rarely a baker, but these are tempting.
