Lemon Love Notes

1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sifted flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar
2 tsp grated lemon peel
2 Tbsp flour

Mix butter, 1 cup flour, and confectioners sugar. Press into an un-greased tart pan or 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Cool in pan on rack.
Combine sugar, 2 tbsp flour and baking powder. Add eggs, lemon juice and lemon peel ( I used dried). Mix well and pour evenly over baked, cooled mixture in pan.
Bake 350 degrees about 25 minutes. The top will puff up in baking, but will fall in cooling. Cool in pan on rack and sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Cut in square or if using the tart pan cut in strips.
Tastes like a lemon pie in a shortbread crust.
