Honey Lemon Squares

Serves 12

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup + 1 tbsp flour, divided
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup lemon juice (approx. 2-3 lemons)
3 eggs
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp baking powder

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium bowl, cream butter and powdered sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add one cup of flour and mix until combined. Press dough evenly into the bottom of an 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
