Lemon Squares

Here's my entry for Morissa's moly - Lemon Squares.


1 Cup flour
1/4 C. confectioners sugar
1/2 C. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift the flour and confectioners sugar together. Add in melted butter and stir into a dough. Press the mixture into an 8" x 8" greased baking pan and bake for 20 minutes.

While that bakes, combine:

1 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 slightly beaten eggs
Juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel

When the crust is baked, let cool for a few minutes. Pour liquid mixture over the top and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Remove and let cool (or chill in the fridge). Sprinkle with more powdered sugar. Cut into squares and devour.
