Luscious Lemon Bars

I am totally not ashamed to assert that these are probably some of the bestest lemon bars you will ever eat!

For Crust:
1 C butter melted (don't use margarine, it's just not the same!)
Dash salt
½ c sugar
2 c flour

Combine and press into greased 9x13” pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350.

For Filling:
2c sugar
¼ c flour
4 beaten eggs
7-8T lemon juice (fresh squeezed lemon juice is best, but concentrated is good, too)
2 ¼ T cornstarch (add in after everything else is mixed)

Combine and pour onto crust. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 until firm but not dry. Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar (or not) and cut into squares. Enjoy gooey lemony goodness!
