"Mom's" Lemon Squares ... you can call her Joanie

Here is the recipe for my mother's Lemon Squares. They are the best. They are. Quick. Easy. They have a lighter texture and a very lemony flavor. Often times a lemon square is tough and gummy -- like a gelatin. Not these. Enjoy!
Mom's Lemon Squares
Mix - stir the following with fork or cut with two knives until it looks crumbly
1 C flour
1/2 C butter
1/4 C confectioners sugar
pinch salt
Press into an ungreased 9 x 9 pan
Bake crust at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
Mix - I did it with a whisk to make sure all of the flour was no longer lumpy
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 C sugar
5 T lemon juice (originally 3T)
3 T flour (originally 2T)
Pour this mixture over crust when it comes out of the oven.
Then bake for 20 minutes more.
Dust with confectioners sugar after it comes out of the oven.
After they cool, cut into small squares. Eat.
