I don't know where this recipe came from. They're really nice and sweet-tart but not heavy.
Serves: 15
Prep.Time: About 1 hour
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
Pinch salt
2 eggs -- slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease and 8x8 square baking pan. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and powdered sugar until fluffy. Gradually add the 1 cup of flour and salt; mix well. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan; bake 15-20 minutes (do not let it brown).
Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl, combine beaten eggs, sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour and lemon juice; mix well. Pour mixture over the hot crust immediately when removing it from the oven. Return pan to the oven and bake 20-25 minutes or until set. Let cool and dust with powdered sugar for serving.
