These cookies are the best lemon bar/cookie I have ever eaten. My friend Donna gave me an assortment of cookies last Christmas and this was in the box. I was pregnant at the time which makes me obsess over all things lemon. If you like lemon you should make these cookies. Perfect for a shower or tea (or for sitting down to eat a 9X13 of lemon cookies one hot afternoon). I, of course, would know nothing about such things.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1/4 teas. baking powder
1/4 teas. salt

Beat butter and sugar in bowl until light and fluffy. In separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Mix both together well. Press dough into 13x9x2” pan refrigerate 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20 minutes.

Just before dough is finished, make topping:

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp. grated lemon peel

Pour mixture over baked dough. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into bars.
