Lemon Bars- Recipe

Another egg consuming baking project. I've never made these before. I read through recipes, and borrowed tidbits til I came up with something I had the ingredients for:

crust:
1c butter
1/2c confectioners sugar
2c all purpose flour
dash salt

I blended all this in my food processor until it was a nice crumbly consistency. sprayed my 9x13 glass baker, pressed it into the bottom, baked at 350 for about 15 minutes.

Filling:
4 eggs
1.5c confectioners sugar (or granulated, i was out)
1/2c lemon juice
4tbs all purpose flour

whisk together, pour over hot crust, bake for addition 15-20 mins. Let stand to cool, then cool further in the fridge. You can tell they are done when they are brown around the edges and looks solid in the middle, appears firm when you jiggle the pan.



you can see the layers of crust and filling, yum!



I also dusted them with some more confectioners sugar, maybe about a tbs.

Review: The crust was PERFECT! The filling could use more than 1/2 cup lemon juice, if you like them really tart. These were more sweet than tart. maybe closer to 3/4c, and maybe some zested lemon peel. and a touch less flour. They are very good though, considering it was my first time making them.
