Classic Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter + extra for the pan
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Butter an 8x8 inch pan. 
Cream butter, add flour and powdered sugar.  This mixture will look like crumbs. Make sure you have mixed it until it holds together when you take a bit in your hand.  Pat into buttered pan. 

Bake 20 minutes in preheated oven. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. 
Once cooled, mix the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, zest, salt, flour and baking powder. Pour mixture over crust. 

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350. Until the lemon mixture is set (the mixture does not jiggle)
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar

Makes about a dozen tasty treats. 
I doubled the recipe and used a 13x9 inch pan.  They did not last too long!
