Lemon Bars

My sister just requested this recipe. Now all of my wonderful readers can have it too! This isn't something we have very often, because my dear husband doesn't care for lemon desserts. However, next time I take them to a Relief Society function, I'll have to take a picture and add it to this post. Hope you enjoy them, Holly!
We had a Relief Society function!
Lemon Bars
from the Hollister Relief Society Cookbook

1/2 cup melted butter or margarine (although I use 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup sugar (3/4 cup is probably okay)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Combine butter, powdered sugar and flour and press into an 8" square pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes in 350 degree oven. Beat eggs, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon juice until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust. Bake 20 more minutes. Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar when cool.

(You can also double everything and bake in a 9x13" pan.)
