lemon bars.

oh, my friends. this is my favorite dessert of all time. so much lemony goodness. i hate it when "lemon" desserts are mostly sweet with only a hint of lemon. this is a lemon dessert. total perfection. anywho, on to the recipe!

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup butter, refrigerated
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp grated lemon peel
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
powdered sugar

combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and flour. cut in butter until crumbly, the size of small peas. press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. meanwhile, beat together eggs, sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon peel and juice until fluffy. pour over hot crust. bake additional 20-25 minutes until no imprint remains when touched lightly in the center. let cool slightly. sift powdered sugar over top. cool completely before cutting (4 hours or overnight). serve chilled.

soon after you remove it from the oven, go around the edge with a knife to separate it from the pan. this will make your life easier when you're cutting them later.

and then you can go ahead and die and go to heaven.
