Hello! It's time for Lemon Square. I use this recipe but with adjustments from the comments, so here is the full adjusted version:

2 cups (~240g) all-purpose flour
1 cup (227g) butter, softened
½ cup (50g) white sugar
¼ tsp salt

1 ½ cups (300g) white sugar
¼ cup (~30g) all-purpose flour
4 eggs
½ - ⅔ lemon juice (3-4 lemons, juiced)
optional: lemon zest from 2 lemons

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • To make the crust: Blend 2 cups flour, softened butter, and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium bowl until well combined; press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13-inch pan. (If using an 8x11-inch pan, increase cooking time of crust and filling by 5-10 mins each!)
  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm and golden, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling: Whisk remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour in a medium bowl. Whisk in eggs, then lemon juice until smooth; pour filling over the baked crust.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Set the pan aside to cool completely; the bars will firm up as they cool. When cooled, cut into uniform squares.
