You need to use fresh lemon juice in this recipe. It’s not worth it without it. Substitute gluten-free all-purpose flour for a gluten-free option.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Weigh or lightly spoon 75 ounces (about 1 1/2 cups) flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine 75 ounces flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Work in butter with hands until mixture resembles coarse meal that comes together like dough when pinched. Press mixture into bottom of a 13 x 9–inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on a wire rack.

Step 4

Combine granulated sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons flour, and lemon rind in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add lemon juice and eggs, beating with a whisk until blended; pour over crust.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely. Sift 2 tablespoons powdered sugar over top. Cut into bars.
