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
