Why I Love This Recipe

Fresh lemon is lovely for summer desserts. This is an easy summertime favorite.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. butter, cold and cut in pieces
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. GGFG Baking Mix
2 t. zanthum gum

1/2 c. GGFG Baking Mix
4 eggs
zest of 2 lemons, very finely chopped
juice of 2 lemons, about 2/3 c.
1/2 t. lemon emulsion or extract


Put sugar, baking mix, and zanthum gum in a food processor bowl and pulse till combined. Then add cold butter and pulse till combined.
Spread onto bottom of a 9"x13" pan lined with parchment paper and pat in place. Bake in an oven preheated to 350F for 20 minutes. Meanwhile make lemon layer by mixing together sugar, baking mix, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and lemon emulsion or extract.
