Lemon Slice

This slice has a shortbread base, a soft lemon filling, and a crispy, meringue-like top.  It's as easy to make as it is to eat!  Enjoy!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup margarine/butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9 x 13 pan.  Mix all three ingredients together into a crumb-like consistency.  Put into pan and press over the bottom with a fork.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.  Cool.

4 beaten eggs
2 cups white sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Beat all the topping ingredients together until light and fluffy.  Pour over the cooled shortbread base.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with icing sugar.  Cool and slice into squares.
