Arnold Palmer Bars

Name: Jennifer Miller
Base: Falls Church
Recipe: CRUST 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour 1⁄4 teaspoon salt TOP LAYER 1⁄2 cup unsweetened tea 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar 3 large eggs 1⁄4 cup lemon juice 2 teaspoons lemon zest 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, for dusting DIRECTIONS For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the butter and sugar in a bowl. Cream together until smooth. Add the flour and salt then stir together until a dough forms. Press the dough into a 9 x 9-inch square baking pan so you get an even layer covering the whole base. Bake for 20-25 minutes until just starting to turn brown around the edges. For the top layer: Heat the unsweetened tea in a small pot over a medium heat. Let simmer until reduced down to 1/4 cup. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest, stirring until smooth. Mix in the tea. Pour this over the baked crust. Reduce the oven to 300 degrees F and bake for another 20-25 minutes until the top is set. Let cool then cut into 16 squares and dust with powdered sugar.
