Calvin Coolidge Lemon Coolers

2 cups flour

½ cup confectioners sugar plus ¼ cup reserved

10 tablespoons butter, diced and cold

5 eggs (not jumbo)

2 cups sugar

1/3 cup lemon juice

¼ cup flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350˚

For the crust: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, confectioners sugar and butter. Mix with electric beater or food processor until a pea-sized crumbly mixture is formed. Press dough into greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes until only slightly brown.

Meanwhile, for the topping: Beat eggs and sugar in large mixing bowl until creamy. Add lemon juice, flour and baking powder until combined into frothy mixture.

Pour topping over baked crust and continue to bake for another 22-25 minutes.  

Let cool until room temperature, sprinkle with remaining confectioners sugar, cut into squares and enjoy.
