Double Lemon Bars

These lemon bars were the perfect ending to a very hot summer day.

Double Lemon Bars

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks), cut into pieces, room temperature
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a large bowl.  Add butter and cut in until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Press mixture into bottom of 9x13x2-inch baking dish.  Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Maintain oven temperature.

Beat eggs, 1 1/2 cups sugar, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon flour and lemon peel in a medium bowl to blend.  Pour onto crust.  Bake until mixture is set, about 20 minutes.  Cool.  Sift powdered sugar over top before serving.
