Stealing a line from Kramer in a Seinfeld episode in reference to Junior Mints..."Those can be very refreshing."  The same can be said for lemon squares.


The lemon squares are sweet yet tart.  They're great as a dessert or snack.

Here's the recipe....



2 cups of flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 cup of softened butter

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

press crust mixture into an ungreased 9 x 13 pan

bake for 20 minutes until crust is golden brown

Important..after you remove the crust, keep the oven on at 350 degrees



2 cups granulated sugar

4 tablespoons of flour

1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice

rind of one lemon

4 eggs

Pour the filling over the crust right away.  Don't let the filling sit around.

Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Dust with powdered sugar.

Chill in fridge for about an hour.

Cut into squares and enjoy!
