Ingredients

  • Crust***

  • 1/4

    cup granulated sugar

  • 3

    tablespoons butter or stick margarine, softened

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • Topping***

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 3/4

    cup granulated sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons grated lemon rind

  • 1/3

    cup fresh lemon juice

  • 3

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/8

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    teaspoons powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. To prepare the crust, beat 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the butter at medium speed of a mixer until creamy. Lightly spoon 1 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Gradually add 1 cup flour to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gently press mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes; cool on a wire rack. To prepare topping, beat eggs at medium speed until foamy. Add 3/4 cup granulated sugar and next 5 ingredients (3/4 cup granulated sugar through salt), and beat until well-blended. Pour mixture over partially baked crust. Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack. Sift powdered sugar evenly over top.
