Lemon Bars
In a bowl combine the flour and powdered sugar, cut in butter. Press into a 13x9 baking dish. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

In a bowl with a hand mixer beat eggs on high until they turn a pale yellow. Add in the sugar, salt and lemon juice, continue beating on high until combined. Pour over the hot crust.
