Lemon Snowbars

I love this lemony bar and I challenge you to have just one bar.
I think I’ve had this recipe since high school.  A classic and easy lemon bar.

Lemon Snowbars

1 cup flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbs. lemon juice – Meyer, if you have it
2 Tbs. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
powdered sugar for dusting on top

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an 8-inch square pan.
  3.  Sift together 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
  4.  Cut in butter to pea-sized pieces.  Pour into greased pan.  No need to press down.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden.
  6. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar and lemon juice until it thickens a bit and smooth.  (About 8-10 minutes.)
  7. In a separate small bowl, stir together 2 Tbs. flour and baking powder.  Add to the egg mixture.
  8. Your crust should be ready.  Pour the egg mixture over the baked layer.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Sift powdered sugar over the top and cool.
