In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is lightly golden brown.

Lemon Filling In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined.

Pour the filling over the baked crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set.

Remove from the oven and let cool completely before refrigerating for at least 2 hours.

Once the bars are chilled, dust them with powdered sugar, then cut into small squares to serve. These lemon bars are perfect for picnics, barbecues, or any summer gathering.
