Lime Bars

Here’s a twist on traditional lemon bars—same soft-gooey-sweet-tart filling, but made with lime instead of lemon!

2 C. flour
1/2 C. powdered sugar
1 C. butter or margarine, softened
4 eggs
2 C. sugar
4 T. fresh lime juice
Zest from one lime
4 T. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 drops green food coloring
Powdered sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 350º. Grease/spray a 9 x 13” pan. Combine the flour, powdered sugar, and butter or margarine until well blended. Press dough into the bottom of the pan, and bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, beat the eggs, sugar, lime juice and zest, 4 T. flour, baking powder, and food coloring. Pour over the crust and bake 20 to 25 minutes more. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cool. These will freeze well with wax paper between layers of bars.
