Recipe- Mom’s Lemon Bars

While I was going through one of my mom’s recipe boxes to find the recipes for Monday’s menu plan I found her recipe for lemon bars. Since I didn’t find the recipes I was looking for I thought I would share this simple dessert with you. These things are so yummy!


1) Prepare a 9×13 dish by buttering it well.

2) Mix: 2 cups of flour, 1 cup Margarine (or butter) softened, and 1/2 cup White Conf. Sugar. Mix together cutting with 2 forks until mixture is crumbly.

3) Press into well buttered 9×13 baking dish

4) BAKE @325 20-25 minutes until slightly golden. DO NOT OVERBAKE.

6) Add: 1/3 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder

7) Pour over BAKED CRUST

8) Put back into oven and bake again for 20-25 minutes
