Luscious Lemon Squares

"I am not much of a cook, but I love sweet/tart treats, and I have been making this since I got a Betty Crocker cookbook with trading stamps in the 1970s. I actually found this website because I googled "lemon squares" looking for a better recipe. This one is good with more lemon, and I consider grated citrus peel to be essential. It works with a quarter-cup of bottled lemon juice and grated orange peel in the crust if that is all I have in the house. I put the baking powder in the crust, as all it will do is neutralize the lemon and weaken the flavor if done as directed. I use salted butter in the crust, and I do add the salt to the lemon juice as it is necessary for the flavor. I rarely have confectioners sugar, and just use granulated, and can not tell the difference. "
