|The Best Lemon Bars. EVER.|
For the Crust:
2C AP Flour
1t Baking Powder
1 Stick of Unsalted Butter, Softened
For the Lemon Filling:
6 Extra-Large Eggs, Room Temperature
2T Grated Lemon Zest
1C Fresh Lemon Juice

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 pan with Pam and set aside.
2. For the Crust, in a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. In an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat together the softened butter and sugar until creamy about 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and beat in the flour mixture until just combined and crumbly. Press the mixture into the bottom of your prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
3. For the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour. Pour over the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is set.
4. Let the bars cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for about 2 hours. Cut into bars and then dust with the confectioners’ sugar, and then enjoy of course... duh!
