Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan. Combine the flour, 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar and butter. Pat dough into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until slightly golden. While the crust is baking, whisk together eggs, white sugar, flour and lemon juice until frothy. Pour this lemon mixture over the hot crust. Return to the preheated oven for an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust the top with confectioners’ sugar. Cut into squares.
