Who would have guessed a pouch of sugar cookie mix got these bars off to a deliciously sweet start?
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
cup butter or margarine (1 stick), softened
eggs, slightly beaten
cups granulated sugar
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
tablespoon grated lemon peel
teaspoon baking powder
cup fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
tablespoons powdered sugar
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat crust ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. In bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press mixture evenly. Bake about 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in same large bowl, stir together filling ingredients except lemon juice. Stir in lemon juice. Pour mixture over warm crust.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes longer or until top is light golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows.
After dusting with powdered sugar, sprinkle with a little colored sugar for a festive touch.
Flour hands or place a plastic sandwich bag over hand when pressing crust in pan.
