  1. Ok, this is my Gogo’s recipe and it’s absolutely out of this world! I can’t get enough of these things and it’s super simple to do. Preheat your oven to 350*F. To make the crust, all you want to do is cut the butter into pieces and put that into a bowl along with the flour and powdered sugar. Mix with fingers until it looks like cornmeal and put in a 9 x 13 pan. Pat it down just on the bottom with your fingers and pop into the preheated oven and let cook for 15-20 minutes until a pale golden. While the crust is cooking, make the filling. In a bowl whisk together the eggs just to break the yoke. To the eggs add the zest of 2 lemons, juice of 2 lemons (no seeds please!), sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together just until incorporated. As soon as the crust is done baking add the filling and pop right back into the oven. Don’t worry about letting the crust cool down.. that’s why I love this recipe! Let the bars cook for another 20 minutes. When they come out, add some sifted powdered sugar on top. When the bars are cooled, just cut and serve! How easy is that? Thanks Gogo!!
