Lemon Bars

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 T. grated lemon zest*
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (2 large lemons)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, confectioner's sugar, and 2 cups flour. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together white sugar and remaining flour. Whisk in the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.

Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. The bars will firm up as they cool. Once cool, cut into bars and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Refrigerate leftovers

*It is best to zest the lemons before cutting and juicing them. When zesting, make sure you only get the yellow of the peel - the white underneath is very bitter.
