Lemon Bars

I made these Luscious Lemon Bars last night for one of the many desserts for Super Bowl Sunday!!!!

Easy and oh so tasty!!!!

Mimi's Luscious Lemon Bars

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
4 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice - (I used 1/2 cup)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350.  Line bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 inch pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Stir together 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar.  Cut in butter using a pastry blender until crumbly.  Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.

Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs in a large bowl until smooth; whisk in granulated sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice.  Stir together baking powder and remaining 1/4 cup flour, whisk into egg mixture.  Pour mixture over hot baked crust.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until filling is set.  Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes.  Lift from pan, using foil sides as handles.  Cool completely on a wire rack.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

The crust was crispy and the filling was warm and lemony....  

Oh so GOOD!!!!!

That was dessert.

This was dinner!!!!
