One of the desserts I made for our Cinco de Mayo party was lemon bars. I love them and it's nice to have something a little lighter in taste when you are also serving brownies and carrot cake. This recipe comes from the Taste of Home Baking Book. Etta Soucy from AZ contributed this one.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
Extra powdered sugar for sprinkling on top (about 2 tablespoons)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the 1 cup of flour, the butter and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar together. It will be coarse and crumbly. Pat into the bottom of an 8 inch square pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Mix the rest of the ingredients together (eggs through lemon zest) and pour over the crust. Bake 20-25 minutes longer. Mine took 20 minutes. Cool the bars and then sprinkle with the powdered sugar.
