Tuesdays at the Table - Lemon Squares

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Sorry for the lack of blog posts last week.  A nasty cold has been circulating around the office (and my family) and I finally fell victim.  It was bad enough that I called in sick to work twice last week...and that never happens!

Anyhow, lemon is one of my favorite flavors!  These lemon squares are very easy and a crowd-pleaser.  Or maybe they just make a girl with a cold feel good!

Lemon Squares

2 sticks butter, softened
2  cups sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
4 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
juice of two lemons (about 1/3 cup)
zest of two lemons
powdered sugar to decorate

In a large bowl, cream together butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups flour and salt.  Press into a greased and floured 9x13 baking dish.  Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees, until the edges start to turn golden brown.

In a large bowl, combing the remaining flour and sugar.  Whisk in your eggs, followed by the lemon juice and lemon zest.  Pour your lemon mixture over the baked crust.  Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees, then allow to cool in the pan.

Dust with powdered sugar and slice into 24 bars.
