Serves 16 | Prep Time 20 min. | Cook Time 45 min.


1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for decorating
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 Tbls. heavy cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbls. flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk 1 cup of flour with powdered sugar.

Cut in butter and cream until crumbs form.

Press into a 8 inch square baking pan, building up 1/2 an inch on all sides. Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are just golden.

While crust bakes, prepare filling.

Beat eggs, lemon juice, and granulated sugar until pale, about 2 minutes.

Add 3 Tbls. flour and beat until just combined.

Pour over hot crust and return to oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until filling is set.

Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

Using a knife dipped in hot water, slice into squares and remove from pan with a thin spatula.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
