Luscious Lemon Squares

One of those classic after-Sunday-dinner desserts. This is my favorite version of lemon bars, because they have a great balance of sweet and tart (I don't like sour anything!).

2 cups flour
1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
5 Tbsp lemon juice
3 tsp finely grated lemon peel

Cut flour, butter, and powdered sugar together and pat into a 13x9 pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. While baking, mix the remaining ingredients together thoroughly. Pour mixture over hot crust and bake for another 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cool, then cut into squares.
