    I got a private message asking for the lemon bar recipe I recently tried out:
    BASE:
    2 c. flour
    1/2 c. powdered sugar
    1 c. butter

    FILLING:
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    2 c. sugar
    1/4 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 c. lemon juice

    GLAZE:
    1 c. powdered sugar
    2-3 Tbsp. lemon juice


    Heat oven to 350. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup, level off. In lg. bowl, combine all base ingredeints -- beat at low speed until crumbly. Press mixture in bottom of a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until *light* golden brown.
    In lg. bowl, combine all filling ingredients except lemon juice. Blend well. Stir in the 1/4 c. lemon juice.
    Pour filling ingredients over baked crust. Return to oven for 25-30 minutes or until top is light golden. Cool 1 hr or until completely cooled.
    In small bowl -- mix glaze and pour over cooled bars.
    Hope you like this one!
