Crust:                                     Filling:
1 1/4 cups butter                     4 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour                       2 cups sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar         6 Tbsp. lemon juice
                                                4 Tbsp. flour
                                                1 tsp. baking powder

CRUST: Preheat oven to 350º.  Put butter in mixer bowl and beat until softened.  Add flour and powdered sugar and mix on low speed until just combined.  Spread dough evenly in a 9 x 13-inch pan.  Bake for 10 minutes or until the corners are light golden brown.  Remove from oven and pour filling on top of crust.

FILLING: In a small mixing bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, lemon juice, flour, and baking powder with a wire whisk or on low speed of a mixer for just a few minutes.  (It is important not to mix a lot of air into the filling.)  Pour on top of partially baked crust and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly and dust with powdered sugar.  Cut into small bars.
