    cupcake's Note:

    These are among my favorite desserts. The Shortbread Crust is simplified by using melted butter. Original Source: Allrecipes.com "Lemon Square Bars" by Ralph. I reduced the white sugar in the topping to about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups. This works well with Meyer Lemons too -- reduce the white sugar in the topping to about 1 1/4 - 1 1/3 Cup as the Meyer Lemon juice is a bit sweeter.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan, making sure you grease the sides of the pan very well.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups flour and confectioners' sugar until well-blended. (If the confectioner's sugar is lumpy, sift or push it through a strainer to get the lumps out.).
    3. 3
      Blend in the melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
    4. 4
      Bake this (shortbread crust) in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.
    5. 5
      In a large bowl, beat eggs until light.
    6. 6
      In a separate bowl, mix together the white sugar, baking powder and 1/4 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs.
    7. 7
      Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.
    8. 8
      Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
