Key Lime Bars

Lane is not much of a sweet eater, but he does like Key Lime Bars and Key Lime Pie...I chose to make him the bars. These are sooo good, you MUST try them.

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup room temp butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Combine and press into the bottom of a 9X 13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. The crust should be slightly brown.

While crust is baking combine the following ingredients:

1/2 cup key lime juice
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
4 eggs
1 tps lime zest

Whip with mixer or hand whisk. Pour onto hot crust and bake for additional 20 minutes or until edges are brown and topping is set. It will still jiggle a little when you shake it, but not too much.

While hot sprinkle with powdered sugar. If you are really adventurous mix additional lime juice with powdered sugar to make a glaze to drizzle on before sprinkling with sugar.
These are a sweet, tart treat you will definately enjoy!
