Skinny Lemon Bars

I love lemon.

 Skinny Lemon Bars
1 c. flour
1/2 c. quick oats
1/4 c. white sugar
3 tbsp. butter, softened

Lemon Middle:
2 eggs
1 c. white sugar
3 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
juice and zest from one lemon

1 c. conf. sugar
juice from half a lemon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep your 8x8, 9x9 or 9" round pie pan. Combine the ingredients for the crust, making sure the butter cuts in evenly and press into the bottom of the pan. Bake for about 15 min. or until the edges start to turn golden.

While that is baking, whip together your eggs and sugar. Next add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Finally add the zest and juice from a lemon and mix very well. Pour mixture on top of the partially cooked crust and return to the oven. Bake for about 20 more min. You can tell that it's done when the center sets up. The top may start to turn golden brown. Let bars cool and cover evenly with glaze. Enjoy!

The whole pan of costs less than $2, and they're easy, so make them.

Hi Honey! These Skinny Lemon Bars sound wonderful, but tell me, what is the "zest of a lemon"? As you know, I am not a fancy cook, but this looks otherwise easy. Love you, Mom
