Tom's Luscious Lemon Bars
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups self-rising flour
Cream butter, flour and powdered sugar.
Pat in bottom of a 9" x 13" pan/pyrex dish.
Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cups sugar
zest from 1 large lemon
1/4 cup all purpose flour
Mix all ingredients and pour over baked crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until the filling is firm or doesn't move/shimmy when the pan is moved. Ovens vary. Also, you don't want to burn the top.
Sprinkle immediately with powdered sugar and wait until cool to cut.
For a more tart flavor, add more lemon juice.
