Great Aunt Kay’s Lemon Bars

by

Crust:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter (chilled and sliced into 1 Tbsp bricks)
Melinda’s addition: Zest from one lemon

Aunt Kay used two forks to mix it up, but I found that making it in the food processor actually works better — pulse it until it becomes a “butter ball” (approximately 20 pulses, don’t over process). I also added lemon zest from one lemon to the crust — Aunt Kay would be proud :-)

Press crust into 9×13 pan, poke a fork throughout, bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes.

Filling:

1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
4 eggs beaten
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

Mix and pour over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
