lime bars...

Lemon bars are usually the favorite, but I like to shake it up sometimes and use limes instead. This is my moms tried and true recipe and the one we love the most! It's been in the family for years and is always a favorite!

2 cups flour 
1 cup butter; room temp
4-5 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together and press into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.

4 eggs
2 cups sugar 
1/2 tsp baking powder
7 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp lime juice
Zest of 3-4 limes

Slowly beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients one at a time, and blend well. Pour over hot crust and return to oven. Lower temp to 325 degrees and bake for 25 min. Let cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Refrigerate before cutting.
