Lemon Squares

How funny it is to post a recipe for lemon squares. Well, funny to me anyway! Here we are in Michigan just having had a blizzard and inches upon inches of snow out our door...and here is me, thinking and craving some refreshing lemon squares. Well, if there ever was a reason for them I believe a stuck-in-the-house-lets-create-SOMETHING-kind of day should be good enough! :o)

Here is a super good, super easy recipe:


1 cup flour

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup powdered sugar

2 tsp. of grated lemon peel, if you like

1 cup sugar

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together flour, butter and powdered sugar in small bowl.

Press evenly with hands in bottom and about 5/8 inch up sides of an ungreased pan, 8x8x2 inch. (If dough is sticky, flour fingers.) Bake about 20 minutes

beat remaining ingredients in a medium bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust.

Bake just until no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. Let stand until cool then cut into 1 1/2 inch squares. Makes about 25 squares.
