Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday: Lemon Pie Bars

Lemon Pie Bars are a delicious treat, so cool and refreshing, perfect for a warm summery day.  Although they also taste like sunshine in the winter, so they are really perfect for anytime of the year.  They are also super simple to make, and only take a few ingredients, making them fairly inexpensive as well.  These slice up nicely and travel well, making them perfect for family picnics and get-togethers.  Here's how easy they are...

3/4 c softened Butter or Margarine
1/2 c Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 c Flour

4 Eggs
2 1/4 c Sugar
4 1/2 tbsp Flour
4 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1.) Mix Crust ingredients together and press into 9x13" pan.  Bake in a 350 degree F preheated oven for 20 minutes.
2.) While the crust bakes, whisk together the Filling ingredients.  When the crust is done, pour the filling over the hot crust, and bake another 20 minutes. 
3.) Let the bars cool slightly, but you need to cut them while they are still warm, or they get very hard and sticky to cut.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.  Enjoy, and try not to eat them all by yourself ;)
