Lemon Bar Recipe

As I sat down to write more pizza recipes to go with our pizza dough recipe from last week I remembered, it's the holidays! Time for the fattening stuff! Today I bring you the best tasting lemon bar recipe I have ever tasted, passed on to me by my mother-in-law. I, being a woman who loves all cherry flavored candy and desserts while not liking anything lemon flavored, married a man who loves anything lemon and doesn't care for much cherry flavored. So, when we married his mom made these lemon bars and I was told they were hubby's favorite dessert, I decided I needed to learn to make these. They are really good and would make a great addition to your Christmas cookie bar recipe list. They are moist, crispy, ooey, and gooey, all at the same time!

Crust Recipe
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup of softened margarine
3 cups of Flour - with an added sprinkle of salt

Mix together well and then flatten out into a 9x13" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 C) for 20 minutes. Remove from oven.

Filling recipe:
3 cups of sugar
6 Tbsp. of flour
6 Large eggs (beaten well)
Rind of 2 lemons and their juice. Pour this mixture over warm baked crust. Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes more. Cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

When completely cool, cut into small squares to serve.
