Lemon squares


This is a recipe from the Mitchell Family Cookbook for my Aunt Linda’s lemon squares. Most delicious when served with vanilla ice cream.



Combine butter, powdered sugar, and 2.33 cups of the flour together in the order listed. Press it into a pan, and bake at 350-375 degrees for 20 minutes. Mix the eggs, sugar, baking powder, lemon juice, and remaining flour in a blender. Blend well, then pour over the partially baked crust. Continue baking at the same temperature for 25 minutes. When it’s done, cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
