Ingredients
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 6 cups granulated sugar
  • 14 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 14 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 12 eggs
Directions

Special equipment: 9-by-13-inch baking pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil.

Mix the flour, butter and powdered sugar. Press the mixture in to the prepared pan building up 1-inch edges. Bake for 20 minutes.

Beat the sugar, lemon juice, lemon peel, baking powder, salt and eggs until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Pour over the baked crust. Bake until no indentation remains when touched, 25 minutes. Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into 4-inch squares and enjoy!
