Lemon Squares

Last summer, I was in the wedding of one of my best friends. She too cannot eat gluten and had gluten free desserts present at her wedding. Her mother made these lemon squares that I went just nuts for. They were incredibly delicious and I therefore requested the recipe.

Ingredients
  • What you will need:
  • For the crust:
  • 1 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (cold)
  • For the filling:
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp gluten free flour
Directions
  • Step 1 Mix the ingredients for the crust in a food processor and set the oven to 350F. Line an 8inch pan with parchment paper and press the crust into the pan. Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 2 Mix the filling together. Once the crust has baked (check that it is baked through- depending on your flour, it may take a few minutes longer) and pour the filling over the crust. Bake again for 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set. Once the filling is set, remove from oven and allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
  • Step 3 Enjoy!
