I was inspired to dig up this old recipe after reading this blog post. My mom used to love lemon squares and she had this old recipe that was passed down from someone who I do not remember. I found the old paper with the recipe written and figured I would share it with you all.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Blend together the flour, butter, and confectioners sugar. Press into a square baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Beat the remaining ingredients and pour over the crust. Bake for another 25 minutes.
