Treat of the Month- Lemon Squares

I really love lemon squares- luckily for me Danae does too! These lemon squares are delicious, so they became The Treat of the Month for September.

As you can see in the pictures, the shortbread crust is actually thicker than the filling, which is a total plus 🙂 If for some odd reason, you’re not a fan of super thick crust, you could put the lemon squares into a larger pan and just shorten the baking time a bit.

To make crust, mix 4 ingredients together and press into a greased 8 x 8″ pan.

Bake for 25 minutes at 350* or until golden brown. If you like your crust thinner, you can use a larger pan but adjust the cook time.

To make the lemon filling, mix the 5 ingredients together…

and pour over the hot crust. Bake for about 30 minutes more. If you notice the top getting too brown, cover with aluminum foil and continue baking until set. Cool and cut into squares. I like to sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar just before serving.
