Lemon Squares from Mom

I am still on my citrus kick!  
Must be my visit to Miami?!
So, I thought I'd share with you today, my mom's famous
Lemon Squares

These lemon squares are a family favorite because they are sweet and tangy with a crust that is unbelievably good!  Don't you just want to stick your fork into the picture?  Here's how to make 'em.  Now I know there are a lot of lemon square recipes out there, some are pretty similar to these, but this was a recipe that my mom had in her recipe box and used for years and years.  I know you'll be glad I shared it!

2 cups flour
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 eggs
4 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cups sugar
4 Tbsp flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Melt butter in a 9 x 13 pan in the oven.  Mix flour and powdered sugar together.  Stir into the melted butter and press on the bottom of the pan, not the sides.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Beat eggs and lemon juice, not frothy.  Mix 2 cups of sugar, 4 Tbsp flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.  Add to the egg/lemon juice mixture.  Pour entire mixture onto hot crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and sift powdered sugar on top.  Cut into bars while warm and then refrigerate.

Boy does that bring me back...
These are the best lemon squares and they won't last long in your house.
Lemon is so refreshing and totally says Summer...yep, I am skipping ahead!  :)

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!

  3. Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD had told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. On Aug 23, 2020, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. I reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
