(This is a true American classic...when Mattie emailed me the recipe I took out the tattered recipe I've used since attending a cookie party in the 1970's. Slight differences: my recipe said "butter or margarine", it has 1 whole teaspoon baking powder and the cookies were called Lemon Bars, although we've always cut them in squares.)
