Lemon Square Bars

2 c sifted flour
1 c powered sugar
¾ c butter, melted
1 t almond extract
2 c granulated sugar
1 t baking powder
¼ c flour
5/8 c lemon juice + lemon zest

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9x13 pan.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 c flour and powered sugar. Blend in the melted butter and almond extract. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 min or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking power and ¼ c of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice and zest. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.

4. Bake for an additional 30 in or until the bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars. May sprinkle with powder sugar.
