  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, 1/3 cup of confectioners' sugar, and butter until butter is in very small crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 11x7-inch pan.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and lightly browned. While the crust is baking, whisk together the eggs, 2/3 cup of confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Just before the crust is done, stir in the baking powder. Pour over the crust while it is hot, and return to the oven.
  4. Bake for another 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until set. Dust with remaining confectioners' sugar when cool.

You need to double the lemon filling part though! YUUUUUMMMMMM!!!

I'm normally not a fan of lemon bars, but these were really good! My mother said this was one of the best desserts she'd ever eaten. The filling had just the right amount of "chewy gooey-ness". ...

I couldn't decide between making this recipe or "The Best Lemon Bars" so I made both yesterday. Friends and family adored and gobbled up "The Best Lemon Bars" and this batch went virtually unto...

Light flaky shortbread type crust bottom. It perfectly balances the tart flavor of the lemon filling on top! It was awesome!

Really tasty! I doubled the recipe thinking I would make two batches, but ended up using all most of the crust and all of the filling for one. Next time I will probably only double the filling a...
