This is probably more of a summer recipe, but I love lemon squares.  And more importantly, I love my new crust that I’m using to make all kinds of shortbread squares.

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter

Mix these well together and put half in an 8×8 greased pan.  Bake for about 10 minutes at 350. 

While the crust is baking, mix these ingredients in a separate bowl:

  • 3 TBSP of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder

Lemon Curd Mix

Take the crust out of the oven and pour the above ingredients into the hot pan.   Now put the remaining crumble mix on top. 

Lemon Curd Shortbread

Bake for another 20-30 minutes at 350.

Let the pan cool before you cut.  Then serve with powdered sugar on top.  It’s got a great tart lemon flavor!
