This is a family favorite that my mom made when I was growing up. My recipe calls for 1/2 cup powdered sugar in the crust instead of white sugar. I also bake mine in a 13 x 9 pan and cut in small 1 inch square pieces for almost a "candy" type of taste rather than eating a big bar. They are wonderful--I have always gotten rave reviews.

*The author forgot to add the lemon to the main part of the squares*. My boyfriend made these for my bday, leaving the lemon out of the squares (it was still in the icing). Even without the lemon in the squares THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS. I almost ate the entire pan myself. Next time we'll add the lemon to the squares and the icing!

I grew up with this recipe. The lemon glaze is supposed to seep into the second layer. The author didn't forget to add lemon to the second layer. I also suggest not adding lemon to the second layer but increasing the amount of lemon juice in the glaze to 6 tsps
