Instructions
-- Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
--Prepare the crust: Mix 3/4 cups of room temperature butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar with your Stand Mixer (or hand held electric)  Slowly mix in 1 3/4 cup of flour on low. Press into the bottom of your greased pan. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until set and slightly browned at the edges.

For the Filling:

--Whisk together 4 eggs and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Add in 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt and whisk until blended.   Whisk in 2/3 cup lime juice, 2 tablespoons of milk. Stir in tequila and 2 drops of green food coloring.

Once the crust is done:

--Pour the filling over the baked crust and pop it back in the oven for 25 to 27 minutes longer or until center is set.
Be sure to cool your bars completely before sprinkling on a little more powdered sugar on top! Keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve!
