Lemon Bars

 I adore lemons so I always buy a big bag of them when I go to Costco.  Then I come home and scratch my head about what to do with them all.  So, what do you do when you have too many lemons? Bake some Lemon Bars. :)   I found this very easy recipe on for Lemon Bars.  My family really enjoyed them and I could not asked for a better use of my lemons.

 For Crust:
20 wafer cookies crushed
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold margarine

1 (8oz) package cream cheese
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbs flour
2 Tbs lemon zest
1/4  cup fresh lemon juice
1/4tsp baking powder

1-2 Tbs powdered sugar
1 Tbs lemon zest

For easy mixing, place cookies, brown sugar and flour into food processor. Blend until sand like consistency.  Then add cold margarine (cut into pieces) and plus food processor until it forms a crumbled consistency.  Either spray or line 8-inch square pan with foil. Press crust ingredients into prepared baking dish and press down into a well packed even layer.  Bake for  15 minutes in 350 degree oven.

Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and remaining zest before serving. Enjoy.
