Instructions

Baking Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 17 x 12 x 1 pan. Mix flour and sugar in food processor and pulse 2-3 times to blend. Add cubed butter and pulse until mixture is a coarse mean and begins to stick together. Remove and form into a big ball. Flatten dough with floured hands and press evenly into bottom about 1.4 inch up the sides of the pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until light brown but not quite done. Let Cool. Filling: Mix sugar, flour, baking powder in bowl and set aside. Mix eggs, lemon zest and juice –wick until smooth and well blended. Sift the flour/sugar mixture into egg mixture and stir until well-blended. Pour filling on top of crust (sprinkle even with blueberries if using). Bake 30-35 min. at 350 degrees until set. Cool for several hours before cutting. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
