PREP TIME 15 Min
COOK TIME 40 Min
READY IN 55 Min
Original recipe yield: 16 bars
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
Top: (I did 1.5 of this recipe to give it more of the lemony layer and would recommend that adjustment)
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
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. (I only cooked it for 15 mins) Crust will look white. Do not brown!
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.
Return to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let bars cool before cutting.
