Mom's Lemon Squares
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup conf. sugar
1 cup flour
Blend as for a pie crust (I use my Cuisinart) and press
into 8x8 in. pan, bake at 350 20 minutes
or until brown.
Remove from oven
2 eggs well beaten
1 cup sugar
3 Tbs lemon juice (about the juice of 2 lemons)
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbs flour
dash of salt
powdered sugar *topping
Beat all together & pour over crust
return to oven & bake at 350 for
25 minutes, check at 20 minutes
to make sure it isn’t too brown.
Cool, when cool dust with confectioners/powdered sugar and cut in squares.
