lemon bars

Since I hate chocolate (I know, I'm crazy),  I prefer fruit-flavored desserts, particularly ones that are lemon-flavored. Lemon bars are easy to make and they look so pretty that they make the perfect little gift. This recipe has been in our family for quite a while and it continues to be a firm favorite.
Bottom Crust:
1 cup of butter
2 cups of flour
Pinch of Salt
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
Mix all dry ingredients together and cut in butter to create a crumbly dough. Press into a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Topping: 
4 eggs
2 cups of sugar
6 tbsp flour
6 tbsp lemon juice
Grated peel of 1 lemon
Mix all ingredients together and pour on top of the baked crust. Bake another 25 minutes at  350 degrees. When complete cool, dust with powdered sugar.
