delicate lemon squares...

Much like Beth on Little Women whenever I can't think of what to say...
I write a recipe. :)
 
This recipe is a favorite in our family.
It is a lesson in Always-Give-Recipes-To-Others-in Case-You-Lose-the-Original.
Mema, the original finder of this recipe, had made a copy for my sister Beth a few years back.
She's recently misplaced it so I was quite thankful that it wasn't lost forever.
(I tried others, but the crust wasn't as tender as this one.)
 
 
Delicate Lemon Squares
 
1 cup flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
 
***
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 T. fresh lemon juice + the zest
2 T. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
powdered sugar for dusting
 
Stir together 1 c. flour & 1/4 c. powdered sugar;
cut in butter 'til mixture clings together.
Press into an un-greased 8x8x2" baking pan.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
 
In mixing bowl beat eggs;
add granulated sugar, lemon juice, & zest.
Beat 'til slightly thick & smooth, 8 to 10 minutes.
Stir together 2T. flour & baking powder;
add to egg mixture.
Blend just 'til all is moistened.
Pour over baked layer.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar.
Cool; cut into 1" squares.
 
Yum! ^_^
                         
 
They don't sit around for too long!
 
Enjoy!
