    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix base ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. With floured fingers, press mixture firmly in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown.

    Meanwhile, beat eggs slightly in large bowl. Mix in granulated sugar, 1/4 cup flour and the baking powder until well blended. Stir in margarita mix and lime peel.

    Just before serving, sprinkle bars with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar. Cut into 6 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Use a fine-mesh strainer to evenly sprinkle the powdered sugar over the bars. Be sure to sprinkle on just before serving; powdered sugar is readily absorbed into the surface of the bars.
