These Lemon Bars are hands down the BEST lemon bars EVER! Shortbread crust is topped with a tart, rich lemon center and finished off with a sprinkling of powder sugar.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat butter and confectioners' sugar until blended. Slowly beat in 1 and 1/2 cups flour.
While baking, in a small bowl whisk eggs, sugar, zest, lemon juice, milk and remaining 3 T flour until frothy. Pour over the hot crust.
Turn oven to 325 degrees and bake an additional 18-20 minutes until the top is lightly brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. Dust the top with additional confectioners' sugar. Cut into bars and refrigerate leftovers.
