    For crust
    2 C sifted all-purpose flour
    3/4 C confectioners' sugar
    3/4 C butter, softened
    1/4 t salt

    10 oz fresh lemon juice (approx. 5-6 lemons)

3. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light (but not frothy). Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1/4 C of flour so there will be no lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice and zest. Pour over prepared crust and return to oven.
