Lemon Squares

These lemon squares are so easy to make. The crust is buttery and the lemon filling on top is such a perfect combination of tart & sweet. They go perfectly with a cup of espresso!
Here's the recipe
I cup of softened Butter
1/2 cup of sugar
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt 
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of flour
Zest of 1 lemon
3 or 5 lemons, juiced to make 2/3 cup of lemon juice
4 eggs

preheat oven to 350º
Blend crust ingredients in a mixer and press on to the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes until slightly golden. When it's done let it cool.

While it's cooling prepare the lemon filling. 

Whisk all the filling ingredients until well blended and pour over cool crust....Bake at 350º for an additional 20 minutes.
Let cool and then put in the refrigerator for at least 3 to 4 hours or overnight. When completely set cut into squares and sprinkle the top with powdered sugar.

♥ Enjoy ♥
