Perfect Lemon Squares
Reviews:
July 16, 2012

These turned out SO much better than I thought they would! Very lemony, but I made sure to increase the lemon zest to 3 tablespoons. I ended up using the zest from 6 lemons, and the juice from 4 lemons. I subbed in half a cup of veggie oil, because I was short on butter, and I added an extra tablespoon of both ground pecans (no almonds =/) and flour to the filling/topping, and gave the the topping an extra 5 minutes in the oven because of the "slimy" comment, and they turned out great. Only caveat here was the crust, it was a tad dry and needed extra time in the oven to brown, but I suspect my pan was too small.
