1/2 cup white sugar
2 sticks (1/2 lb) butter, unsalted and at room temp.
2 cups flour
pinch of salt
6 eggs at room temp
3 cups white sugar
2 Tblsp grated lemon zest
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, make sure parchment paper is long enough to come over the sides. This will make it easy to pull out the bars.
In the bowl of mixer, add sugar and butter and beat using the paddle attachment until light. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough starts forming into a ball. It will still crumble easily.
Dump the dough into the prepared baking dish and flatten using your floured hands.
Bake the crust for 20 minutes, until very lightly browned, you'll start seeing the edges brown. Let it cool and leave the oven on.
To make the filling, whisk together all the filling ingredients. Pour over cooled crust and bake for another 30-35 minutes or util the filling is set. Let cool at room temp.
Cut into triangles or squares and dust with powdered sugar. EnJOY!
