Lemon Bars


I am not a huge fan of lemon bars but these are by far my favorite!  It has a rich buttery crust with just the right amount of lemon.  I hope you like them!

CRUST:
 1 cup flour
1 stick butter softened
1/2 c powdered sugar

LEMON TOPPING:
2 cups granulated sugar
3 tsp lemon zest
3 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs
powdered sugar for garnish

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix flour, butter and powdered sugar with a pastry cutter until it forms peas size pieces.  Press the flour mixture into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes. While crust is baking beat remaining ingredients on high speed for 3 min or until light and fluffy.  Once the crust is done pour the lemon mixture over the hot crust and bake 25-30 minutes or until it is golden brown. Cool and then dust with powdered sugar.
