lemon squares

Feeling the need to bake with lemons, I pulled out one of my mother's old cookbooks and found a lemon square recipe. The squares couldn't have been easier to put together and disappeared from the counter at a rapid pace.

Mix 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 sugar and pinch of salt.
Press into a 9x9 pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350.
Mix 2 eggs, zest of one lemon, juice of said lemon, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 3 tbls flour.
Pour over baked crust and put it back in the 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
Sprinkle some powdered sugar over top, and cool before cutting.

Anything lemon with REAL lemon ingredients is the best summer dessert.

Your squares have this all REAL ingredinets look to them that is getting harder and harder to find in any commercial place these days.
