Coming home to 90 degree weather wasn't easy but I am still hopeful that Fall-like temperatures will reach Atlanta soon.
I'm not sure why I categorize lemon squares into the "Summertime" recipe category except that their sunny yellow color just reminds me of a warm summer day. The crispy, buttery crust and delicate lemon filling with its bright flavor is the perfect treat for any day.
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
12 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
Press crust mixture into a greased, parchment lined 9x13 inch pan.
Bake crust 25 minutes at 350.
Whisk together eggs, sugar and flour.
Whisk in lemon juice, milk and salt.
