Lemon Bars

A southern favorite, Lemon Bars are easy and delicious.

25 bars

Preheat oven to 350

Shortbread Base:
1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup butter
1/4 Cup confectioners sugar

Lemon Topping:
2 eggs
1 Cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbl lemon juice

Base: Mix flour & sugar together. Cut butter into dry ingredients until crumbly. Press into an ungreased 8x8x2" baking pan (I line mine with aluminum foil), creating a 1/2" edge all around.
Bake 20 minutes.

Beat remaining ingredients about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust. Bake 25 minutes or until no imprint remains when touched lightly in center. Cool on a rack and cut into bars.
