Key Lime Squares

Key lime – one of my favorites.  What’s not to love?

It’s a big favorite with a few of my close friends, too, as you may remember from my post with my key lime pie recipe.  And speaking of Chach, we had a blast at the Bruce concert Tuesday night (hence the reason I had no post for you yesterday…sorry!).  To all the fellow Bruce fans – make sure you see him this tour – it was a great show (then again, when is it not great?  Um, never!)

Just a little peek to show you how amazing our seats were…be jealous!

It never gets old, even after seeing him…oh, probably close to 40 times 🙂

So, now I’ve got two of my favorite things in this post…The Boss, and anything key lime.   These squares are perfect if you’re still trying to figure out what to make for Easter dessert.  Give them a try!

Key Lime Squares
slightly adapted from Baked Perfection

2 1/4 cups AP flour
2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
5 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup key lime juice
a few drops of green food coloring (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl, combine flour, confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.  Cut in butter with 2 knives or pastry cutter until crumbs are formed.  Press evenly into greased 9×13 pan.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until slightly browned.

While crust is baking, combine eggs, sugar, lime juice, food coloring, 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.  Pour mixture over hot crust and bake for about 22-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Cool completely and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
