Servings and Ingredients
|2 c. plus 3 tbsp Hy-Vee all-purpose flour, divided|
|½ c. Hy-Vee powdered sugar|
|¼ c. Hy-Vee cornstarch|
|1 c. Hy-Vee butter, sliced, cold|
|4 Hy-Vee large eggs|
|1 ½ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar|
|⅔ c. fresh lemon juice|

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and cornstarch. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are light brown.
- Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl whisk together eggs, granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, milk and lemon zest. Pour filling over hot crust. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cover and store in the refrigerator.
- Just before serving, use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Cut into bars and sift additional powdered sugar over top.
