Lemon Squares!

It is summer and nothing reminds me summer than lemons! Never really cared for lemons until I tried these lemon bars! Oh my these are heavenly!




Lemon Squares

Crust

2 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsifted icing sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl, stir together the flour, icing sugar and salt. Cream in the margarine until the mixture turns into a pliable dough. Pat the dough evenly by hand into the bottom of a buttered 9"x13" pan.

Bake for 11 minutes. Let cool slightly before adding filling.

Filling:
4 large eggs
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup all purpose flour

While the base crust is baking, beat together all ingredients until smooth.

Pour over the hot baked base. Return the squares to the oven immediately. Bake at 350°F about 25 minutes until pale gold in color. During last 5 minutes, put a cookie sheet below the baking pan to be sure the bottom does not burn.

Remove from the oven. Let cool completely in the pan on a cake rack.

Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container.
