Continuing on yesterday’s theme of family recipes, I didn’t make these lemon squares either, but they are so awesome that I wanted to share. And for the readers who have been asking for more recipes with ‘real flour’ and ‘real sugar’, this is one for you!

2 c. flour, sifted
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
4 eggs
4 T flour, sifted
4 T lemon juice
1 t baking powder
2 c. sugar

Melt butter in a glass dish. Mix in 2 cups sifted flour and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, and then press mixture firmly into a 13×9 glass dish. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350F until the bottom is light brown.

Beat together eggs and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and then pour mixture on top of hot crust. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350F. Cool, and cut into squares. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
