This a wonderful recipe that I have had on hand for many years. We recently made some to say thank you to the gals in the neighborhood who have helped us out with babysitting.

Lemon squares

Preheat the oven to 350
 for the crust,
 in a mixing bowl combine
1 cup butter  softened
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered or confectioners sugar

Combine into a crumbly dough
press this into a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes

While the crust bakes make the filling.
4 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons lemon juice
6 Tablespoons all purpose flour
grated rind from 1 lemon
Mix these ingredients well and pour over the hot crust as it comes out of the oven
Bake the entire thing for another 25 minutes  
Dust with powdered sugar after baking.
