The sun and warm weather appear to be finally arriving in Chicagoland, though we had some snow yesterday. Spring makes me think of lemon bars, though I don’t turn them down any time of the year. My mother tried so many recipes of this, and would get exasperated if they didn’t turn out the way her mother’s did. Do you have a favorite version?
This is another from the St. Walter’s “Kitchen Kookery” that I’ve been posting from recently.
2 c. flour
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
1 c. margarine
Sift flour and confectioners sugar. Add margarine; cut into flour until clings together. Press into a 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350F 20 – 25 minutes.
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
While crust bakes beat eggs, sugar, lemon juice. Sift flour and baking powder. Stir in egg mixture. Pour on crust. Bake at 350F 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and let cool.
