If you have lemons…

Make Lucy’s Lemon Squares…

I don’t know why Spring always makes me think of Lemons…or is it vice versa?

I have always loved this dessert since I was a kid. The first time I made it was from a recipe from a kid’s cook book called, “PEANUTS COOK BOOK”.

Sift 1 Cup of flour and 1/4 Cup of Powdered Sugar together. With clean hands blend into the flour/sugar mix, 1/2 Cup room temperature softened butter until well mixed. Pat evenly into the bottom of a 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 350.

Meanwhile, beat together 2 eggs, 1 Cup granulated sugar, 1/2 teaspoon baking POWDER,  2 1/2 Tablespoons FRESH lemon juice,  and a dash of salt. Pour this over baked crust and return to oven for 20 minutes at 350.

Remove from the oven and let cool at least an hour on a rack. As you see I doubled the recipe and poured it into a round tart dish. When cooled, sift powdered sugar on top.

Here is the cover of the cookbook, just for fun!
