I absoultely love lemon and I saw this great recipe for lemon bars the other day and my eyes were bug-eyed. I couldn't wait to add it to my recipe box.

1 c butter softened (no substituting)
1/2 c powdered sugar
4 eggs (slightly beaten)
2 c sugar
4 Tbsp flour
6 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 c butter (softened)
1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp milk
2 Tbsp cold water
1 MIX CRUST INGRED. WITH FORK AS YOU WOULD FOR A PIE CRUST. PAT INTO A 9X13 PAN WHICH HAS BEEN GREASED AND FLOURED. BAKE AT 350 DEGREES FOR 15 MINUTES.
2 AS CRUST IS BAKING. MIX FILLING. AFTER CRUST HAS BAKED 15 MINUTES, POUR FILLING OVER CRUST AND CONTINUE BAKING FOR 25 MINUTES. COOL BARS COMPLETELY
3 MAKE FROSTING BY BEATING BUTTER,POWDERED SUGAR AND MILK FOR 6 TO 8 MINUTES ON HIGH SPEED. THEN ADD 2 TBLSP. COLD WATER ONE AT A TIME. BEAT UNTIL SMOOTH. SPREAD OVER COOLED BARS.
