Lemon Bars

For Father's Day my sweetheart requested these bars as dessert.  They have a nice shortbread crust covered with a wonderful lemon filling and to top it off a light sprinkle of powdered sugar.  YUM!

To make the crust:  (Do this first)
  • Beat together until light and fluffy:
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • Then beat in just until mixed:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • Press this into a 13 x 9 baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-17 minutes.  Cool.  When it is cool make the filling.
filling:  Beat together all of the following ingredients.  Pour over cooled crust.  BAke at 350 for 30-35 minutes.  When it is cool sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • 6 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • powdered sugar, for dusting
