Lime Bars
yield: 12

2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chilled butter or margarine
1 tsp lemon or lime extract

4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
6 to 8 limes (enough to make 1/4 cup )

Make crust either by placing ingredients in food processor with
metal blade and processing a few seconds to make coarse crumbs. Or
by hand: combine flour and sugar and cut in chilled butter until
coarse crumbs. Pat mixture evenly into a well greased 9 x 13 inch
pan. Bake crust in 350 oven until light golden about 15 to 20
minutes. Meanwhile make filling. Beat eggs until well blended for
several minutes. Beat in flour, sugar and baking powder. Blend in
lime juice and grated rind last. Spread mixture evenly over prebaked
crust and return to oven and bake about 20 more minutes or until
filling is set. Cool completely before cutting. Dust with powder
sugar. Cut into desired amount of bars. Note: These are a thin and
tangy pastry.Serve well chilled or at room temperature.
