Day 17 Of The Rosiethon. Rosie Makes Lemon Bars.

 Dear Readers,
this is the last installment for my 2013 Rosiethon.
Hope you found something you liked.
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Today, I'm making Lemon Bars.

For the crust:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
Mix together flour and sugar.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender
 until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Press into lightly greased 8" square pan.
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

While the crust bakes, make the filling.
2 eggs
 1 cup sugar
3 TB flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 TB lemon juice
grated rind from 1 lemon

Beat eggs.
Gradually add in sugar, beating until light and fluffy.
Mix in rest of ingredients.
Pour mixture over baked crust
and bake an additional 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and cut into squares or bars.

 Baked crust ready for filling.
