Rich Lemon Squares

I found this hand-written recipe tucked into a cookbook purchased at a thrift store. The author notes these Rich Lemon Squares freeze well.



Rich Lemon Squares ingredients
Makes at least 20 small squares
Crust
1 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
1/2 cup confectioners sugar, unsifted
2 cups all-purpose flour, unsifted
Dash of salt

Filling
4 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup frozen lemon juice, thawed
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt

Topping
About 2 Tbsp confectioners sugar


Directions
Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter or margarine and the 1/2 cup confectioners sugar. Add the 2 cups flour and dash of salt; beat until blended.

Spread mixture evenly over bottom of 13- x 9-inch ungreased pan and bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, and in a small bowl, beat the eggs until light-colored. Beat in the remaining filling ingredients until well blended. Set aside until crust has baked for 20 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and pour lemon filling mixture over partially baked crust. Immediately return to oven and continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes until filling is set. The lemon filling will remain somewhat soft and moist, and never become cake-like.

Remove pan from oven and cool completely.

Use a sifter to evenly sprinkle about 2 Tbsp confectioners sugar over the top. Cut into small squares.
