    Camp Lemon Bars

After a great Dutch oven dinner at camp, there is nothing as good as a dessert also made  in the old Black pot. This is one of my favorites. Although I do have many, and there are more on this blog, Just scroll bake to find others.

2 cups all-purpose flour 
½ cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs, beaten
6 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ cup confectioner' sugar

Combine 2 cups flour and confectioners' sugar in a medium mixing bowl, and mix well. Cut in butter until crumbly. Lightly greased and dust with ¼ cup of flour a 12" Dutch oven. Press crust mixture into oven. Bake at 350°f, over 9 charcoals and covered with lid, with 15 charcoals on it for about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat by setting aside and removing lid, but keep charcoals in place. While you were cooking crust, In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, ¼ cup flour and baking powder. Mix well. Stir in eggs, and lemon juice. Gently pour over crust and spread over baked layer. Replace oven over charcoals and replace lid. Bake for 25 minutes more. Let cool. Dust with ¼ confectioners' sugar; cut and serve.
