Why I Love This Recipe

From a neighbor of mine. Back when my husband and I got married, the neighbors through me a wedding shower. One of the things they did was every guest brought a recipe. This is one of those recipes.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 cup butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350'

Resift 2 cups flour with powdered sugar into medium bowl. Add butter and mix thoroughly. Pat dough evenly into bottom of 9 x 13 in baking dish. Bake until golden brown, 20 - 25 minutes. Let cool.

meanwhile, sift remaining flour with baking powder into small bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in medium bowl and beat well. Gradually add flour, blending thoroughly. Pour over cooled crust, spreading evenly to edges. Bake until set, about 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
