Lemon squares

Those of you who know me well, will know how much I love all things lemon, especially lemon squares. Growing up, these were always my favourite dessert. I had made them recently, taken pictures, but never done the actual post on them. I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do!

Crust

1 cup of butter, softened
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 cups of flour

Blend the butter, salt, sugar, flour together and put it evenly into a non-greased, 9×13 inch pan. Preheat oven 325F and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

Meanwhile…

Lemon goo

4 eggs slightly beaten
2 cups white sugar

Beat together well. Then add the ingredients below and mix again. 

1tbs of grated lemon peel
5 tbs of lemon juice
1/4 cup of flour

After the crust has baked, pour lemon goo over the baked crust, reduce heat to 300F, and bake for 25 minutes. Cool. Put in fridge, covered. Dust with powdered sugar before cutting.
