Lemon Bars

We had a great time Saturday night at a potluck supper...nicely done steaks and a huge variety of salads and desserts.  Yum!

Christine was there and she brought her Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing.  It's a favourite of mine and one of the first recipes I ever posted.  

I brought a plate of goodies, Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares (super easy, super quick, super good) and some Lemon Bars.  

The Lemon Bar recipe was one I clipped out of the newspaper sometime in the distant past - not even sure which paper!  I rediscovered it when I tidied out a very messy kitchen drawer recently.

Lemon Bars

1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour

In mixer, beat butter.
Add sugar and beat well. 
Beat in flour until crumbly.
Press into bottom of an ungreased 8x8 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes (golden brown).

2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Combine filling ingredients in mixer.
Beat for two minutes.
Pour filling over baked crust.
Bake 20 minutes (lightly browned and centre set).
Cool on wire rack.
Sift powdered sugar on top and cut into bars.
