A lemony secret

ABC Wednesday
April 1st, 2015

The letter is L and I will let you in on a secret....

When the telephone rings, and somebody says, - 'we're having a Reception - High Tea - a Funeral - a Shower - a Party - a Luncheon - whatever!!   Can you bring a square??'

Yes, yes, I say, and this is the square I make, invariably.

So simple, so easy, -  so refreshing.  Always a success.   Try it- you'll love it....


You are going to need a 9 x 13 inch pan (preferably glass) and a 350 degree F oven,
 and a couple of bowls.
Or maybe only one if you are prepared to wash between layers.....

Stir together until well blended one cup of melted butter, one half a cup of sugar
 and two cups of flour.

Pat dough into the pan and bake for twenty minutes in the 350 degree F oven.

While it is baking mix well together - four eggs, two cups of sugar,
 one half a cup of lemon juice, four tablespoons of flour
and a half a teaspoon of baking powder.

Pour this over the hot crust when you take it from the oven.  

Bake twenty to twenty-five minutes longer until set.

Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar.

Regard with delight and be prepared for compliments!

This sounds wonderful Hildred. I have visitors at the week end and if I can find a cup - gram conversion (we don't do cups over here) I shall try it on Friday.

I am ready for that Tea Party! Please ask the Hatter and the dormouse not to eat all the lemon bars. They look and sound delicious.

Lemon Squares are a favorite here. I have several recipes--the best one making a 9x9 pan of squares. I'm going to check and see if your recipe is perhaps a double version of mine--useful for church potlucks or a company meal. I usually cut back on sugar in baking recipes by about 1/4 cup with no harm to the finished product.
