I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Lemon Squares

Lemon Squares
from Everyday Food

3/4 C flour
1/3 C powdered sugar

1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C butter cold and cut into small pieces

Filling

4 eggs
1 C sugar
2/3 C fresh lemon juice

Oven to 350.  Coat a 9" square pan with cooking spray and line with parchment, leaving 2" overhanging.

In food processor pulse dry crust ingredients.  Add butter and pulse until resembles coarse crumbs.  Press into bottom and 3/4" up the sides of pan.  Refrigerate 15 minutes, then bak until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Reduce oven to 325.

Now for the filling - beat eggs untili thick.  Ad sugar, juice, flour, powsder and salt.  Pour over warm crust.  Bake until set, 20-40 minutes.  (E.F. says 20 minutes, but mine needs 40!)  Cool to room temperature and refrigerate 1 hour.

Lift square from pan, sift a little extra powdered sugar over the top.  Cut into 16 squares.
