  Makes 16 two-by-two-inch squares
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, blend together the 1 cup of flour, the butter, and the 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Press this dough into a greased 8-x-8-inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, but leave the oven on.

While the dough base is baking, mix together the granulated sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour, the baking powder, eggs, and the lemon juice. When the base is removed from the oven, pour this lemon mixture over it and return the pan to the oven. Bake for another 20 to 25 minutes.

Cool in the pan. Cut into squares and sift confectioners’ sugar over all.
