Aunt Betty's Lemon Bars

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 cup butter

4 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
1/3 cups lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a medium bowl stir together the 2 cups flour and the 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture clings together. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 13X9 in baking pan.

Bake crust in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, beat together the eggs, granulated sugar and lemon juice. Combine the 1/4 cup flour and the baking powder; stir into the egg mixture along with the lemon peel. Pour over the baked crust.

Bake bars in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack. Sift powdered sugar over the top of bars. Cut into bars or into 2X1 2/4 inch diamonds -- Makes 30 bars.
