  1. For Crust: Preheat oven to 350 °F (175°C) . Line with heavy duty aluminum foil a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Lightly butter the sides of the pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the powdered sugar and flour; cut in the butter, using a pastry cutter until mixture is a fine crumb. (You can also use a food processor fitted with the metal blade attachment.) Press mixture onto the bottom of prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges start to brown. For Lemon Filling: Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in beaten eggs until well blended. Slowly stir in the lemon juice, mixing until mixture is just blended. Pour over the baked crust. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Very carefully, as the crust is tender and apt to crumble, lift using the foil lining, from pan. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
