Lemon Bars Recipe

A yummy Spring treat!  I made these lemon bars for Easter Sunday dinner and they were quite the hit!

Lemon Bars
(recipe shared by a co-worker)

2 sticks butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Additional confectioners sugar for sifting over the top of the bars

Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Blend together butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar.  Pat into ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.  Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.  For filling, blend together eggs, sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, lemon juice and lemon zest.  Pour over baked first layer.  Return to oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until filling is set.  Loosen around the edges, cut into bars and shift confectioners sugar over the top while warm.
