Luscious Lemon Squares

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

After making some lemonade last week, I had some more lemons left over so I decided to make some lemon squares. These sweet but tarty squares will be a hit at any barbecue, baby shower or dinner you host or attend this summer! Enjoy!

Lemon Squares
Prep time: 15 min        Cook Time: 40-50 min           Yield: 20 squares

Ingredients
Crust
- 1 cup All-Purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, cold
Topping
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp. All-Purpose flour
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 tsp. grated lemon zest
- 4 tbsp lemon juice

Directions
1. Crust: In a medium bowl, combine sugar and flour. Using two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into greased and floured 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 325F for 20 minutes or until golden.
2. Topping: In a medium bowl, beat sugar, flour, eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice until smooth. Pour over warm crust and return to 325F oven for 20-25 minutes or until set. Allow to cool completely in pan. Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares. Serve warm or cool.
