Lemon Bars

Every body loves them, although I think one is enough — boy are they rich.  Barb Gertz at Recipeczar.com has a really good recipe for Lavendar Lemon Bars; they raise the elegance bar (pun intended) a few notches.

Mix

  • 1/2 # butter (no substitutes)
  • 2 c. flour (I use at least part ww)
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Press in  a 9×13″ pan.  Bake 10 min. at 325 degrees.

Beat

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 c. sugar
  • 1/2 teaspn salt
  • 1  c. flour
  • 1/2 teaspn baking powder (note: not baking soda; learn the difference)

  • 2 Tablespoons lemon zest

Beat this well. Pour over crust. Bake for 25- 30 min (do not overbake) at 325 degrees.
