Here’s a simple recipe for creamy lemon squares:
Ingredients: For the crust: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 1/4 cup powdered sugar For the filling: 1 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 cup heavy cream For the topping: Powdered sugar for dusting Instructions: Crust: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×9-inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, softened butter, and powdered sugar.
Mix until the dough comes together. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake the crust for about 15 minutes or until it’s lightly golden. Remove it from the oven and let it cool while you prepare the filling. Filling: In a large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice, lemon zest, and heavy cream until well combined. Pour the lemon filling over the cooled crust, spreading it evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly. Allow the lemon squares to cool completely in the pan.
Topping: Once cooled, refrigerate the lemon squares for a few hours or overnight to set. Dust the top with powdered sugar before serving. Cut into squares and enjoy your creamy lemon squares!
