Gardening is something you learn by doing---and by making mistakes....
Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Ryan's Lemon Pucker Bars

Ryan has been hounding me all day to let him cook something.  Cupcakes were his first choice...I talked him out of it.  Then he suggested Lemon Bars.  We had to make a trip to town to get sugar and flour (and a loud noisy gun for Lainie), but we did it.

Ryan's Lemon Pucker Bars

1 Cup Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Cup Flour

6 Eggs
3 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Lemon Zest
1 Cup Flour

Powdered Sugar for dusting

In a bowl cream butter and sugar, gradually add in the flour.  Mix until well combined.
Press crust mixture into a greased 9x13 baking pan.  Push crust up the sides about a 1/2 inch.
Bake at 350F for 20mn, until lightly brown.  Remove from oven and cool.

When crust is out of the oven start making the filling.
Whisk the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and zest.  Add the flour, mix to combine.
Pour the filling over the crust in the 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350F or 30-35 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
When cooled dust with powdered sugar.
