From My Kitchen to Yours....

Every year I spend lots of time in the kitchen making cookies and fudge to give as Christmas gifts to family and friends. This delicious lemon bar recipe is one of my favorites because it is super simple to make and they freeze well! I will warn you, they are very rich and their wonderful intense lemon flavor (similar to lemon drop candy) is very addictive! Enjoy!

Lemon Bars

1/4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 c. all purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 c. sugar
2 Tbls. lemon juice
2 Tbls. flour
grated lemon rind

Cream powdered sugar, butter, 1 c. flour and pinch of salt together until crumbly. Press dough into 9 inch square greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Beat eggs slightly to blend yolks into whites. Add to the eggs: 1 c. sugar, lemon juice, remaining flour, lemon rind and blend together well. Pour egg/lemon mixture over baked crust and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly brown on top.
