Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups Gluten Free Flour I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter cold, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons water

For the Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon peel grated
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup Gluten Free Flour I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour

For Serving

  • Powdered sugar *SEE NOTE

Instructions

  • Heat Oven to 350F. Spray a 9x9 baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside. (I also like to line with foil and then spray...makes pulling them out of the pan much easier)

For the Crust

  • In a medium bowl, combine flour and sugar. Use a fork or knives to stir in the butter until a crumbly mixture results. Add water a bit at a time. Take mixture and press evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes until slightly golden and set.

For the Filling

  • In a mixing bowl, stir together all of the filling ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour mixture over the still hot crust.
  • Bake 22-26 minutes or until set in the middle. Let cool on the counter for a minimum of two hours. Cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar. If not immediately serving, store in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*Powdered sugar is gluten free as long as it uses cornstarch or tapioca starch as it's base. so just be sure to double check ingredient list.
