Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars must be sweet and tart, with a crisp yet tender crust and smooth, 
almost fluffy filling. This is the perfect recipe.

2 cups flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 pinch salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup lemon juice

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup 
powdered sugar, and 3/4 cup melted butter; mix until crumbs form. Press into 
the bottom and 1/2" up sides of a 9" x 13" pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until 
crust is just set. While crust is in oven, beat eggs with electric mixer until 
light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light yellow and thick. 
Beat in flour, lemon juice, and salt. When the crust comes out of the oven, 
pour the filling over as soon as it is 
beaten together. Return to oven and bake for25-35 minutes or until filling is 
set and light golden brown on top. Let cool completely. In small bowl, combine 
2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/4 
cup lemon juice. Mix well, then pour over cooled bars. Refrigerate until 
cold, then cut into bars. Yields 24 bars.
