Number of Servings: 24


    1 cup margarine (2 sticks)
    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 medium eggs
    2 cups more sugar
    1/4 cup more flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup lemon juice
    1/3 cup powdered sugar


Soften up the margarine by leaving it on the counter for an hour or so, or do it in the microwave. Add the flour and 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix very well to make a dough similar to pie crust. Turn the dough into a 9 by 13-inch pan. Use your hands or the back of a spoon to pat and press the dough into an even layer on the bottom of the pan. This is the crust. Bake at 325° for about 20 minutes. Do not overbake.

Now prepare the lemon layer. In the same bowl combine the eggs, 2-cups sugar, 1/4-cup flour, baking powder and lemon juice. Blend with a whisk until smooth and thick. Carefully pour this over the baked crust. Shake the pan gently to level it all out. Bake at 325° for another 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool before dusting the tops with powdered sugar and cutting into bars.
