Lemon Bars

This Food A-Z project I'm doing really has me making all kinds of things that I probably wouldn't have made otherwise. Today I made lemon bars, a recipe I got from Amani over 2 years ago. I copied it down and it's been sitting on my laptop waiting for me to make it. I've been wanting to make them for a long time but I just never have. L week gave me the push to finally do it. It wasn't hard at all.
Danish Kringle
2 sticks (8 ounces) butter
2 C flour
1/2 C confectioners' sugar
4 beaten eggs
2 C sugar
4 Tbsp flour
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp lemon zest
sifted confectioners' sugar

Heat oven to 325°.

Blend butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and pat into ungreased 13x9x2-inch pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
