Lemon Squares

I’ve rarely created a dessert that disappears as quickly as these easy to make Lemon Squares. Mix 4.5 ounces of unsalted butter and one third cup superfine sugar in an electric beater until fluffy. Add one cup of sifted flour. When well mixed press into a shallow 8 x 12 baking tin. Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden and firm. Now beat 4 eggs and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy, and stir in a quarter cup of lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of lemon zest. Sift together a quarter cup of flour and a half-teaspoon of baking powder and gradually whist into the egg mixture. Pour onto the base. Bake for 20 minutes, cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve cold. Then eat one quickly before they’re all gone.
