My dad’s favorite sweet. He would always request these whenever I came home. I think this is where I got my love of lemon. And let me tell you, any “trait” I may be blessed to get or have that is from my dad has got to be GOOD! He is such a wonderful example of a person that NEVER judges (well not counting the times he checked my ears to see how many “holes in my head” I recently had). My dad is someone I will always try to impress. I Love you Dad!
*You can cut this recipe in half if you don’t need this large of a pan. But I will warn you, they will go fast!*
1 C. (2 sticks) of margarine, softened
1/2 C. powdered sugar
2 C. flour
Dash of salt
Mix these together and press into a lightly greased 9×13 pan.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350.
While crust is in oven, mix together in another bowl:
4 eggs, beaten
2 C. sugar
1/4 C. flour
5 TBSP lemon juice
Mix well. Take crust out of oven and pour lemon filing over crust.
Return to oven and continue baking for another 25 minutes.
Making sure center is “set”.
While still warm, run a knife around edges of crust.
Dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
*Tip: I have even added some fresh lemon zest to the filling. It does add to the flavor.
