Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Filling: Beat the butter until it is light and fluffy, add the powdered sugar and beat again until fluffy.
  2. Add the flour and mix until well incorporated-but don't over beat it or you will make the dough tough.
  3. Press this into a 13 x 9 pan.
  4. Pat evenly.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes until light or golden brown.
  6. Meanwhile make the filling.
  7. To beaten eggs add the sugar and mix well, stir in the lemon juice, flour lemon zest and baking powder and mix until well incorporated.
  8. Pour over the warm crust (I only let the crust cool about 5 minutes any longer and the dough starts to shrink from the sides of the pan and your filling will seep underneath) Bake 30-35 minutes.
  9. The center will not feel completely set-but that's okay-let cool completely than cut and dust with powdered sugar.
  10. They cut well after they have been refrigerated about 45 minutes.
