Bars, Lemon II (D/P, TNT)
Source: My mother
Serves: Varies according to slice

3/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1-1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour

3 eggs, slightly beaten
1-1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp. flour
juice and grated zest of one lemon

Make Crust:
Mix the first three ingredients together like pie crust until it crumbles.

Press into a greased and floured 13"x9"x2" pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350°F.

Make Filling and Assembly:
While crust is baking, mix the last four ingredients.

Pour over the hot crust and return to oven for an additional 20 minutes at 350°F.

Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar while still warm. Cut into bars.

Poster's Notes:
This is a delicious, easy, pretty dessert that people love. It is one of my favorite desserts to make. For pretty presentation, I usually slice them into bars and then put individual cupcake liners, then arrange them on a platter. This is great when baking for guests, a Shalom Zachar, Sheva Brachot, bridal shower, or other large group.
