Lemon Bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil. Grease foil; set aside. In a large bowl combine the 2 cups flour, the 1/2 cup powdered sugar, the cornstarch, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges are golden.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl stir together eggs, the granulated sugar, the 3 tablespoons flour, the lemon peel, lemon juice, and half-and-half. Pour filling over hot crust. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Grasping foil overhang, lift from pan. Cut into bars. Right before serving, sift powdered sugar over tops. Cover and store in the refrigerator.

It tasted sugar too much and the bottom mixture is too thick. Next time I'll try to cut 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 the recipe for the bottom mixture and it should be awesome!
