Lemon Bars

Very Tarty! ...

*Popeye's eye... very tarty because I used real Lemons instead of bottled lemon juice from concentrate..*

I had this recipe for many years. I used to make those for my girls YEARS ago...!!  

Okies... I'll hush and here is recipe that you asked for !!


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine

4 large eggs

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup thawed from lemon from concentrate....    ( I USED 2 LARGE LEMONS.)
Mix flour and 1/3 cup powdered sugar in a medium-size bowl.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles small peas.  Mixture will be dry and crumbly.  Press in bottom of un-greased  9-inch square baking pan.  Bake in preheated 350 oven 15 minutes or until lightly golden.


Meanwhile with electric mixer at high speed beat eggs in a medium-size bowl about 3 minutes until pale and thickened.  Gradually add granulated sugar and continue beating 1 minute longer or until mixture is thick.  Stir lemon juice.  Pour into hot crust;  bake 15 minute or until golden and pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar.  Cool in pan on rack.  Cut in 4 X 1 inch  bars.  Makes 16.

Enjoy!!! XoX
