  • Preheat over to 350 degrees, rack in middle position.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
  • Cut each stick of butter into eight pieces.
  • Zoop it up with the flour and powdered sugar in a food processor until it looks like coarse cornmeal (just like the first step in making a piecrust).
  • Spread it out in a greased 9 x 13 pan and pat it down with your hands.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden around the edges.
  • Remove from oven - but don't turn the oven off!
  • Mix eggs with white sugar.
  • Add lemon juice & zest if you want to use it.
  • Add salt and baking powder and mix.
  • Add flour and mix thoroughly. (This will be runny - it's supposed to be.).
  • Pour this mixture on top of the pan you just baked.
  • Stick it back into the oven.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for another 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle on additional powdered sugar.
  • Let cool thoroughly and cut into brownie-sized bars.
