Lemon Love

Is there a better way to celebrate summer than by baking a double batch of lemon bars? My tastebuds say no.

I made these Tuesday, and my parents' Wednesday night small group gobbled them up. Yum, yum, yum!

Here's my recipe in case you want to bake up your own batch of sunshine.

Crust:
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup flour, sifted
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, flour and powdered sugar, then pat into 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 until light brown (about 15 minutes). Cool.

Filling:
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsps lemon juice
powdered sugar

Beat eggs in large bowl. Add sugar, flour, baking powder, & lemon juice & stir until mixed thoroughly. Pour into cooled crust, then bake at 350 until set (about 25 minutes). Cool for at least 2 hours. Dust with powdered sugar.
