All-Time Favorite Lemon Bars
Today, by my husband's request, we made Lemon bars. These lemon bars are really good, and not to "lemony". They are pretty easy to make. It only took us about 2 hours, including cooking.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter (I used butter)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, combine flour and powder sugar, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press crumbs mixture into bottom of an ungreased 8 or 9 inch pan. bake for 15 minutes
Next, in a small bowl, combine eggs and sugar, blend well. Stir in remaining filling ingredients. Pour filling over baked crust.Return to oven,bake for an additional 18 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 hour or until completely cooled. Cut and serve.
