I hope you all had a great Christmas! I certainly did. The best part was being with all my family!

At the request of my youngest grandson, I made a pan of lemon squares. As you can see from the photo, we are a family of edge eaters! lol Well, I do have a daughter in law that likes the middles, but most of us fight over corners and edges. My daughter gave me an all edge pan to make brownies so we always get at least two edges. I should have used it for the lemon bars. Uh oh, too late smart once again.

In case you would like to have some lemon squares at your home, here is the recipe:

Lemon Squares

1 C butter, softened
2 C flour
1/2 C powdered sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 C granulated sugar
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 C lemon juice
5 T. flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Beat butter, powdered sugar and 2 c. flour until smooth. Spread into greased 13X9 pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Beat together the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, 5 T flour and baking powder. The mixture will be thin. Pour over the top of the baked crust and continue to bake for 25 minutes more. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, cool and cut into squares.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much for the yummy recipe, Karen! How funny that you have so many "edge eaters" in the family! What a great picture and something to chat about... sounds like a good scrapbook page to me! :-) Thank you for the lovely (and I mean LOVELY) Christmas card! Yours was the only hand made one that we received. Hope your Christmas was better than wonderful!

Yummy these are my favorite but i like the center ones the best, as a matter of fact our pan looks like yours because I have been giving the edge ones to my kids and saving the middle ones for myself!
