To make crust: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8-inch-square cake pan with unsalted shortening and dust it lightly with flour. Sift flour and confectioners sugar together into a bowl. Add half the butter and cut it in with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture looks like coarse meal. Cut in remaining butter until it looks like large peas. With a floured spoon, press dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven. To make filling: In a small bowl, beat eggs and sugar together until well blended. Add baking powder and flour and beat until blended. Mix in lemon juice and peel. Pour mixture over baked crust and bake for 25 minutes more. Frost with Confectioners Sugar Icing while still warm. Cool in pan on wire cake rack. Cut into 25 squares. Confectioners Sugar Icing: In a bowl combine ingredients and then spread over lemon squares.
