Lemon Bars (I hate baking)...

made lemon bars - 2 big pans for a friend's niece's wedding TONIGHT!! {Recipe below). I hate baking and this is why - see the 4 eggs tucked up in the method for the crust????? Well, I didn't!!!!! Tooth-breaking stuff they were! lol Maybe now she'll quit asking me to BAKE STUFF!!!!

OK, I edited this so it reads right so no one else messes it up.

LEMON SQUARES

CRUST
2 sticks margarine
2 c. flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar

Melt butter in 9 x 13 inch pan. Mix flour and powdered sugar. Pat down to make crust. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Lemon Topping
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Beat together and pour over hot crust and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Sift powdered sugar over top. Let cool. Cut in small squares.

LOL at your baking endeavors, elfie. It's really not that hard, but ya DO have to read the entire recipe.

One of my girlfriends hates baking so much she GAVE me her Kitchen Aid stand mixer, still in the box, that she had received as a wedding gift.

LOL, Alix! I wouldn't be surprised if she did. Life is one continuous drama with her, with the long-running mini-feature film about her current marriage (#2). I put up with it because underneath it all she has a heart of gold (plus she just up and gave that mixer to me....)
