Tom's Luscious Lemon Bars

Crust

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.

Topping

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.
