Sometimes you just need an old fashioned lemon bar......packed with a bright,sweet lemon flavor....
so I made half a batch.
I think my favorite part is the shortbread type crust...so rich and buttery. They just melt in your mouth!
1 c. butter
2 c. flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Mix together as for pie crust. Pack well in the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350.
While baking the crust mix:
2 c. sugar
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
4 Tbsp. flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
grated rind of 1 lemon, optional
Pour on top of hot crust and bake another 20-25 minutes at 350. Remove and cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
