Lemon Bars

Lark's Country Heart
These are also know as: Dad-Can't-Get-enough-of-those-Lemon Bars!
My Dad's Favorite Sweet. He would always request these whenever I came home. I think this is where I got my love of Lemon. And let me tell you, any "trait" I may be blessed to get or have that is from my Dad has got to be GOOD! He is such a wonderful example of a person that NEVER judges. (well not counting the times he checked my ears to see how many "holes in my head" I recently had) My dad is someone I will always try to impress.I Love you Dad!

*You can cut this recipe in half if you don't need this large of a pan. But I will warn you....They will go fast!*

1 C. (2 sticks) of Butter ; softened
1/2 C. Powdered Sugar
2 C. flour
dash of Salt
Mix these together and press into a lightly greased 9x13 pan.
Bake for 15 minutes in a 350 oven.

While crust is in oven Mix together in another bowl:

4 Eggs; beaten
2 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Flour
5 TBSP Lemon Juice

Mix well, take crust out of oven & pour lemon filing over crust.
Return to oven and continue baking for another 25 minutes.

Making sure center is "set".

While still warm,  run a knife around edges of crust.
Dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.

*tip: I have even added some fresh Lemon Zest to the filling,it does add to the flavor.

Happy Baking,
