12 Days of Christmas Treats: Lemon Squares

     My Mom had great taste in goodies.  And these were some of her very favorite for good reason! Lemon.  Squares.  Are.  Yummy.  Another flavor for your cookie tray that will mix it up a little.


Lemon Squares

Pastry:
2 sticks butter
1/2 C powdered sugar
2 C flour

Filling:
4 eggs
2 C sugar
1 T flour
1/3 C lemon juice
1 t baking powder

     Mix pastry ingredients, press into 10X14 inch pan.  Bake 15 min. at 325°.  Beat 4 eggs slightly, add remaining ingredients, mix and pour on top of pastry.  Bake 40 minutes.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cool and cut into squares.

So simple to make it's ridiculousSo delicious it's ridiculous.

    1. Thanks, Hannah! These were a little less tangy than most because I used homemade lemon juice. Very nice! PS, I've still got some if you want a couple delivered... ;)
