Lemon Kisses

Lemon Kisses is a dessert made with a cookie crust and a yummy lemon topping.
These tasty little bars are perfect for a girls luncheon, baby shower, bridal shower, family gathering, or just because.


2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, well beaten
1 heaping tablespoon grated lemon rind
1/4 cup lemon juice
Additional powdered sugar for sprinkling on the cooled dessert bars

Sift the flour and the powdered sugar together. Cut in butter until well blended. Press mixture over the bottom of a 9 by 13 by 2-inch pan. Bake about 25 minutes at 300° until very lightly browned. Be careful not to over bake. Combine the remaining ingredients and evenly spread the mixture on top of the baked crust. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with a generous helping of powdered sugar when completely cool.

Makes about 12 servings.
