Easy Lemon Bars

For Base:
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter (softened)

For Top:

4 large beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

For the base mix the butter into the flour and sugar together with a fork or pastry cutter - until it clings together.

Press into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

For the filling, beat together eggs, sugar, zest and lemon juice. Sift together flour and baking powder. Stir into egg mixture.

Pour over baked, cooled crust. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into bars. Serve right away or store in fridge up to one day. Lovely and lemony - a great take along!!
