Nieman Marcus Delicate Lemon Bars

My Mom made these while we were home for spring break and I loved them.

1 C. flour
1/4 C. pwd sugar
1/2 C. butter

2 eggs
3/4 C. granulated sugar
3 T. Lemon juice
2 T. Flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Confectioners sugar
With all the lemons we have here in Az. I need to do something with them all.

Stir together 1 C. flour and 1/4 c. confectioners sugar, cut in butter until mixture clings together, pat into ungreased 8 x8 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. In a mixing bowl beat eggs, and the sugar and lemon juice. Beat until slightly thick and smooth-about 8-10 minutes. Stir together 2 T. flour and baking powder and add the egg mixture. Blend just until all is moistened and then pour over the baked layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven when done and sift confectioners sugar over top. Cool and then serve!

I think Lemon bars are probably my favorite dessert!
