DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.).
  • Blend in the melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Bake this (shortbread crust) in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs until light.
  • 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.
  • Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.
  • Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
