Lemon Squares

I got this recipe from my cousin Katie's family cookbook. I hope this is ok to post a recipe. Maybe one day she will sell the book and then you can all buy one. So, this is Sister Wirthlin's famous Lemon Squares recipe. I took them to a lunch and everyone LOVED them.

1 cup melted butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour

Mix the above ingredients and press in a 9x13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 or until lightly browned around the edges.

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
1/2 tsp baking powder

Blend the above ingredients in a blender or mix well. Pour over hot crust and bake for 25 minutes at 350. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cool and cut into bars. Refrigerate any leftovers.
