Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 ½ tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

  2. To make crust: Mix together the butter, 1 1/3 cups flour and 1/4 cup sugar with a fork until crumbly. Press into an 8 inch square pan and bake for 20 minutes. Crust will look white. Do not brown!

  3. Combine the eggs, 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until well mixed. Pour over pre-baked crust.

  4. Return to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let bars cool before cutting.
