90 Calorie Lemon Bars

These Lemon Bars are a speciality of mine, my whole family loves them especially my Dad. He actually requests that I make them for him all the time. They are such a refreshing little dessert and are a good break from chocolate. This recipe makes 25 mini bars that are exactly 90 calories a piece. Here's what you'll need,

1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine *softened*
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel(if desired, I think it really kicks up the lemon flavor so I recommend it)
2 tablespoons lemon juice *fresh squeezed works best*
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs 
Extra powdered sugar to sprinkle on top of the bars when finished

Preheat the oven to 350
Mix flour,butter,and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Once mixed press into square pan 8 by 8 by 2 or 9 by 9 by 2. Building up 1/2 inch sides. 
Bake crust for 20 mins then remove from oven. 
Beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on high speed for about 3 mins or until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust. 
Bake 25-30 mins or until no indentation when touched lighty in center. Cool in pan then dust with powdered sugar. Cut into 5 rows by 5 rows. 
I hope you guys enjoy this recipes as much as my family.
