Sweet and tart, these moist, powdered-sugar-topped dessert bars will disappear fast.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5 slightly beaten eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Sifted powdered sugar


  1. For crust: In mixing bowl, combine the 2-1/2 cups flour and 3 tablespoons sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
  2. Press into the bottom of a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until golden.
  3. For filling: In medium mixing bowl, stir together eggs, the 2-1/2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup flour, lemon peel, lemon juice, and baking powder until combined.
  4. Pour filling over the hot crust. Bake bars in a 350 degree F oven for about 20 minutes more or until lightly browned around the edges and the center is set.
  5. Cool in pan on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cover; store in refrigerator. Makes 48 bars.
