1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tabelspoons butter, softened
1 cup all-purpose flower

3 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar

To prepare crust, beat 1/4 sugar and butter at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife
Gradually add flour to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until mixture resembles fine crumbles
Gently press mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, cook on a wire rack
