    Posted March 24, 2006 07:32 AM

    I made this using lemons - very good! Lina made them using limes and said they were good too.

    Lime Squares OR Lemon Squares

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1/4 cup powdered sugar
    1 cup granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    2 tablespoons flour
    2 teaspoons lime zest
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2-3 drops green food coloring

    Heat oven to 350
    Mix flour, butter and powdered sugar.
    Press into ungreased 8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inch baking pan, building up 1/2 inch edges.
    Bake 20 minutes. (I baked for 15 min).

    Beat remaining ingredients until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, pour over baked layer.
    Bake until no indentation remains when touched in the center, about 25 minutes.
    Cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

    Cut into 1 inch squares
