Ode To Mom....HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ~with A Side Of Lemon Squares

I would do anything my mother asked of me. However, Mom is the kind of woman that WOULDN'T ask, not wanting to impose on her family and friends. That's the kind of woman and special Mother she is; loving and kind, always there to lend a hand or a word of encouragement. Mom is our biggest cheerleader as we go through life, traveling our own road. She's an extraordinary woman and I am honored to call her my mother and friend!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOTHERWE LOVE YOU ~ALL FOUR OF THE P'S!

In honor of Mom's birthday here is one of her favorite recipes, Lemon Squares! She loves just about anything that's TART!!

INGREDIENTS
For the Crust
  • 1 1/2cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup {1 1/2 sticks} cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces



For the Lemon Filling
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

 WHAT TO DO
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover a 13 X 9 inch pan with non -stick foil.
  • Combine ingredients for crust in a food processor or by hand - I just use my hands....easier clean up. Mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of prepared pan and bake until crust is lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the lemon filling: In a bowl, combine all filling ingredients. Mix well and pour over warm crust. Bake until set, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature or refrigerate about 1 hour. I eat one as soon as they come out of the oven! I can never wait until they cool!
  • Using non-stick foil helps when lifting the lemon squares from the pan - it's a good thing.  Cut into small squares. Top with confectioners sugar if desired.
