Meyer Lemon Squares

These are some really great little lemon sqaures...sweet and tart with a light crispy crust. This plays a bit into my meyer lemon obsession. What is cooler than the fact that you use the WHOLE lemon rind and all...great lemony taste with a unique texture too.

Meyer Lemon Squares

For Crust:
3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

Zest of 1 Meyer lemon

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks

preheat 350
pulse in a food processor until combined. press crumbly mixture into the bottom of a 8x8 pan that you sprayed with cooking spray.
bake 15 minutes and remove from oven. turn oven down to 325.
WHILE crust bakes. prepare the filling.

For Filling:
1 whole Meyer lemon quartered (remove seeds)

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

1/2 cup Meyer lemon juice (from 3 to 4 lemons)

Powdered sugar for garnish (optional)

in a processor pulse the quartered lemon until well chopped. add remaining ingrediants and pulse a few times. Pour filling over hot crust and bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes. You want it to be set...but slightly gooey if you poke it with a toothpick.

garnish cooled lemon squares with a dusting of powdered sugar.
