So I’m at work after an extra day off on the weekend. I caved on Sunday and called into work and took the night off after realizing I just didn’t feel up to going into work. I guess it is all part of the process and I just have to get use to it.
Onto happier, sweeter topics! On Saturday I had some free time and decided to whip up a batch of lemon squares. These little delights require a bit off effort and a lot of eggs but are indeed worth it!
2 cups of flour
1/2 Powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
5 tablespoons flour
Zest from one lemon
1 1/4 lemon juice
1/4 cup milk or cream
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients (I sift the powdered sugar in) and cut in butter. Mix with hands until mixture resembles crumbs. Press mixture into a greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees until edges turn golden about 15-20 minutes. Prep filling while base is baking!
Mix sugar and flour together in medium bowl. Lightly beat eggs in a bowl and add in sugar, lemon juice,zest and milk. Once mixed add liquid ingredient mix to the sugar/flour mix. Stir everything together until we’ll mixed.
Pour filling mixture over base and return to oven for 15 -20 minutes until filling mixture sets.
Cool on a rack and store left overs in the fridge or freeze.
I like to use a tart pan to make bars so I can remove the sides to make cutting easier but a lasagna pan lined in foil with extra foil over the edges to lift out works as well.
I like to dust these with powdered sugar before serving, or eat them over the kitchen sink… Which ever 😉
Yum! These look fantastic!
