1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour


3 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

To prepare the crust, beat granulated sugar and the butter at medium speed of a mixer until creamy.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Gradually add flour to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

Gently press mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes; cool on a wire rack.

To prepare topping, beat eggs at medium speed until foamy. Add granulated sugar and next 5 ingredients, and beat until well-blended. Pour mixture over partially baked crust.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack. Sift powdered sugar evenly over top.

This was quick and easy. Instead of using lemon rind, I just added an additional 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice. Thanks!
