From food.com

Crust:

2 cups sifted flour
½ cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
½ tsp salt

Filling:

4 large eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
¼ cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp lemon extract

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan. Mix together the flour, powdered sugar, salt, and butter with your hands until you can squeeze it into clumps. Press into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool a bit.

Beat together the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon extract until well combined. Whisk in the flour and baking powder, making sure there are no clumps. Pour over the crust and bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes, or until the center doesn’t wiggle when you move the pan. Cool completely before cutting into squares and dusting with powdered sugar.
