Lemon Squares

I made Lemon Squares Monday afternoon.  Bread Machine shared this recipe with me about a year ago--YUM!  I didn't want to use 1 whole cup of butter, for money reasons, so I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup margarine.  The crust still had that nice buttery flavor and it saved me a few pennies too!

This recipe come from
The recipe for these "melt-in-your-mouth" squares comes from Peg Hurley, an old Lexington, Massachusetts, friend of the Sands'. She says they are even better sprinkled with confectioners' sugar after they've cooled.
1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) butter
1 cup (4 1/4 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup (1 ounce) confectioners' sugar

2 large eggs
1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) lemon juice
2 tablespoons (1/2 ounce) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
a pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Cut the butter into the flour and confectioners' sugar and press into a 9-inch square pan. Bake 20 minutes or until light brown.

Combine the topping ingredients. When the bottom is done, and still hot, pour the topping over it and continue baking for about 25 minutes.

Sprinkle top with confectioners' sugar.
