Lemon Squares with Shortbread crust
Here is the previous recipe.
24 Lorna Doone Shortbridge cookies
1/2 stick Unsalted Butter at room temperature(1)
1/2 cup flour(1)
4 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons Flour
6 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon juice
pinch of salt
Lightly grease a pan. The size is dependent on how thick you want the bars.
Make the crust by crushing the shortbridge cookies in a large bowl.
Cut in the butter and move it about with a spatula or spoon to make a crumbly mixture.
Press the mixture into the bottom of the pan.
Bake at 350o for 10 minutes.
To make the filling, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, salt, flour and lemon juice.
Pour this over the pre-baked crust and bake for 35-40 minutes longer, until golden brown.
We let the pan cool and then cut down the sides of the pan and invert over a plate.
With luck, the finished product will fall out of the pan onto the plate.
Flip again, right-side-up, and you can cut into squares/bars of whatever size you choose.
You can dust with more confectioners' sugar.
