Lemon delight


Combine together –

1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of flour
¼ cup xxxx (confectioner’s) sugar

Press into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

While that is baking, mix together-

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons lemon juice – plus the rind (I used the zest instead)

And pour it over the crust once it is baked. Then bake this all together for 25 more minutes at 350 degrees. Let it cool on a wire rack.

This was from one of my Mom’s friends. She got it from her in 1966. I liked this so much I asked for it often for my birthday instead of cake. I never cooked it with her. She never taught me how to cook. Today was the first time I made this. It was hard. And it was amazing.
