Lucious Lemon Bars

Here is an updated version of Mom Fromm's delicious Lemon Bars! I'm not a very good baker, but theses are easy and so much better than a boxed mix!

Crust:
3/4 cup Butter
1/3 cup powdered Sugar
1 1/2 cups Flour
Zest of 1 Lemon

Mix sugar, zest, and flour. Cut butter into flour mixture like when making pie crust. Press into a 9 x 13" pan and bake for 15 minutes on 350 degrees.

Filling:
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated Sugar
4 tablespoons Flour
1/3 cup Fresh Lemon Juice (about 2-3 lemons)
Zest of 1 Lemon

Whisk together until smooth.
Pour over cooked crust. Bake another 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
