Cream together the 2 cups flour, butter, and ½ cup confectioners’ sugar. Spread into a 13x9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Crust should be a pale gold at edge.
In a bowl, mix eggs, granulated sugar, and salt. Then blend in lemon juice and rind. Sift ¼ cup flour and 2 teaspoons confectioners sugar into egg mixture; fold in. Pour egg mixture over crust and return to oven for 30 minutes. Sift confectioners’ sugar over top after taking from the oven, if desired.
