Very lemony-flavored with a shortbread crust; to die for! You can make smaller slices and tart can yield 16. Very decadent!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake crust until light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Whisk sugar, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup flour in a bowl until smooth. Pour lemon filling into crust. Cover edges of crust with strips of aluminum foil to prevent burning.

  • Bake tart until filling is set, about 20 minutes. Cool completely and dust with confectioners' sugar.
