Lemon Squares

This is my mom's recipe and another one of my favorites. Like most of my lemon recipes, I always add a little more lemon into the recipe (be it more zest or more juice).

Lemon Squares

1 cup butter (softened)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar

4 eggs (slightly beaten)
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
6 Tablespoons lemon juice

Directions: Mix the softened butter, 2 cups flour and powdered sugar together. Butter should be softened, but not melted. This creates a doughy-type base. Pat into a 9x13 pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

For the filling, mix eggs, sugar, 1/4 cup flour and lemon juice together. Pour over cooked crust and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool, dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.

Yum. I've always loved lemon bars and have never known a recipe. I want to make these this weekend! The cupcakes look delicious too. I'll have to post a recipe I have for lemonade cake. It's SO good.
