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
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.
