Lemon Bars

Another on my Christmas squares/bars list.

Lemon Bars (Betty Crocker)
1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c butter softened
1/4 c icing sugar
Mix first 3 ingredients, and press into a 8x8 or 9x9 pan, building up 1/2 inch edge. Bake crust for 20 min @ 350.

1 c granulated sugar
2 tsp grated lemon peel, if desired (but strongly recommended! I love lemon!)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer at high speed for 3 mins, or until light and fluffy (mine never really got light and fluffy, but it still worked out). Pour over hot crust.
Bake 25-30 mins or until no indentation remains when lightly touched in centre. Cool in pan. Dust with icing sugar. Cut into bars.
