#11 How about some Lemon????

This time of year you can find Meyer Lemons almost everywhere. Now is the time to eat til you pop those little lemon bars we all secretly desire all year long! It makes my mouth water and my mouth pucker just thinking about these super cookies! Let's get started!

2 sticks (8 ounces) butter
2 cups flour
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
4 beaten eggs
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel
sifted confectioners' sugar

Heat oven to 325°. Blend butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Pat into ungreased 13x9x2-inch pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. For filling, blend together eggs, sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, and lemon peel.

Pour over first layer. Return to oven and bake at 325° for 20 minutes. Loosen around edges, cut into bars and sift confectioners' sugar over the top while warm. Be careful eating these! You don't want to choke on the powdered sugar by inhaling when you take your first bite!
