Lemon-icious Bars

What is more refreshing than a lemon?  With this heat wave sweeping the heartland, I have been craving lemon…and lemon bars are one of my favorite comfort food desserts.  I brought this sweet treat to a family gathering on the 4th of July.

2 C all-purpose flour

1/2 C confectioners sugar

1 C butter

4 eggs

2 C granulated sugar

1/3 C lemon juice (I squeezed 1 1/2 lemons)

1/4 C all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Sift the first two ingredients together.  Cut in butter until mixture clings together.  Press into a 13×9 baking pan.  Bake at 350º about 20-25 minutes, until crust is lightly browned.

Put the eggs, sugar and lemon juice in a blender and mix until it is thick and smooth.  Sift 1/4 cup flour and baking powder and add to the blender.  Blend to combine.  Pour the lemon mixture over the crust and bake for another 25 minutes.

Once cooled, cut into bars and sift confectioners sugar top.
