Luscious Lemon Bars

Sweet and Tart

Maybe it is just me, but with warm weather I tend to prefer fruity desserts.  I made these Easter weekend and meant to post them then, but time seemed to slip away.  These bars are very similar to the Key Lime Bars I so dearly love and have featured here before.  They are easy to make and will definitely please a crowd.

Luscious Lemon Bars

2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup (two sicks) Butter, softened
