Recipe Directions for Lemon Bars

  1. Directions

  2. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

  3. 2. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups flour and confectioners' sugar. Blend in the melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  4. 3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1/4 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps.
