New Recipe Monday — Lemon bars

It’s lemon season! My source for fresh lemons has dried up, but I made these anyway with store bought lemons.
2 cups flour
1 cup butter
1/2 powdered sugar
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice (I usually use the juice of a couple lemons)
1 tsp lemon rind (I usually use the rind of one lemon grated)
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup powdered sugar (for dusting the top)
In mixing bowl, combine flour, butter and powdered sugar. Press into bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
While base is baking, beat eggs and combine with sugar, lemon juice and rind. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt. When base is removed from the oven, pour lemon mixture over base and return to the oven. Continue baking for another 25 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar while still warm.
These are a family favorite that everyone enjoys! They certainly don’t last long around here.
