Lemon, lemony bars

I love anything lemon and here's a really good recipe for lemon bars that came a while back in my Kroger insert.

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs (large)
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbs all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs grated lemon peel
sifted powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine flour and sugar in bowl.  Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Press lightly onto bottom and halfway up sides of ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Beat sweetened condensed milk and eggs in bowl until fluffy.  Beat in lemon juice, flour, baking powder, salt until blended.  Fold in lemon peel;  pour over crust.

Bale for 20 to 25 mins or until filling is set and crust is golden brown.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Refrigerate for about 2 hours.  Cut into bars and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  You can also mix the powdered sugar with a little lemon juice and poured over bars before cutting.


Hope you all enjoy!

Many blessings,
