I recently posted a lemon curd recipe. Since I had all those lemons I needed to find another use for them. Digging back through my old blog I came across this post. Ta-da! Here is my entry for the Second on the Second hosted by Elizabeth at the Altered Book Lover blog. Thanks Elizabeth for keeping this going.

Lemon Bars (recipe)
What do you do when your lemon tree is producing lots of lemons?
Make lemon bars of course!
Our Meyer Lemon puts out so much fruit this time of year. What you see here is just the harvest from one day.
Here's a simple but delicious recipe for lemon bars. I think I've posted it before. It is a favorite and if you have a few lemons the rest of the ingredients are pantry staples. I usually cut the bars smaller, they are very rich. I guess my appetite must have kicked in when I was cutting these.
2 cups flour
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Mix & press in 9 x 13" pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350F.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
grated rind of one lemon (optional)
5 tablespoons flour
4 beaten eggs
Mix sugar, juice and flour, add eggs. Pour over crust and bake for 25 minutes at 350F. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when done.
