The Best Lemon Bars RecipeMeasure flour, blend with butter and powdered sugar. Press mixture into bottom of 8x8 pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Beat remaining ingredients together and pour over crust. Bake an additional 20 - 25 minutes. Do not overbake! Filling puffs up a little while baking then flattens when cooled. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when you remove it from the oven.

Originally from the Betty Crocker Cookbook, ca. 1950. Has appeared countless times in church cookbooks ever since! Very tasty, very simple and they don’t last long!
