Lemon Lime Bars

We are all about a citrus recipe in our house. I absolutely love anything lemon or lime. My favorite pie is lemon meringue. These lemon lime bars disappeared extremely fast!

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar (plus extra to dust on top)
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
12 tbsps butter (cold and cut into small cubes)

 4 large eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 tbsps all purpose flour
zest of a lemon
zest of a lime
2/3 cup freshly squeezed juice (I used 3 lemons and 2 limes)
1/3 cup whole milk
Pinch of salt

Line a 9x13 pan with foil then grease and set to the side. Mix together the flour, powdered sugar, cornstarch and salt. Cut in the butter until it is resembles pea sized chunks. Press the dough into the bottom of the pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Heat oven to 350 and bake the crust for 20 minutes or until golden brown. While the crust is baking make the filling. Whisk together the eggs, sugar and flour in a large mixing bowl. Add the zest, lemon and lime juice and milk.  When the crust is removed from the oven let it cool for 3 minutes then carefully pour the filling over the crust. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 and bake for 20-35 minutes or until the filling has started to firm up.  Cool the bars completely then sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut.
