Nan's Lemon Bars

This is a combo of a couple recipes, with additions & changes I made to make them my own. This is more of a "hearty" bar, NOT a light flaky type of lemon bar. My adult sons & hubby prefer it over the other type of lemon bars.

Ingredients

2c
all purpose flour
1/2c
butter, room temperature
1c
sugar
1/2c
cream cheese, room temperature

LEMON TOPPING

1/3 c
lemon juice
4 large
eggs
1/2c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
CRUST: flour, butter, sugar & cream cheese - Mix well; can use mixer or pastry blender for easier handling, but I use a fork. As combining the dough, scrape edges to combine well.When mixed well,gather together.
2
Press dough into 9 X 13 greased pan
3
Bake @ 350 degrees 15 - 20 min When crust is golden, remove from oven & pour lemon topping on it, while crust is still hot.
4
While crust bakes, prepare the lemon topping. Combine eggs & lemon juice; whipping until frothy. Add dry ingedience & mix well, scraping edges as combining. When crust is golden, remove from oven & pour lemon topping over crust.
5
Put back into 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. It may not look "set" completely, but will set up as it cools. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Some folks like it thick, while others prefer a slight sprinkling of powdered sugar-enjoy it YOUR way!
