The Best Lemon Square Recipe... EVER

Maybe not EVER, but in my opinion they are the bomb.  I can't stop eating them.  I suggest you make these for something so you aren't like me eating four a day.  But if you do eat four, you will love every single one.

I got the recipe from a friend at work so I'm not taking any credit for them.  And from here on out, please call these Kristen's Famous Lemon Squares.  No joke, these bad boys could be famous.

Please keep in mind all of these pictures are taken on a shitty iPhone with shitty lighting.  You want better pictures, feel free to send me a nice camera!

Printable version.


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectioners sugar, plus more for dusting
Pinch of salt
1 cup of butter, at room temperature

4 eggs
2 cups granulated white sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350,  Lightly grease a 9 by 13 inch pan (make sure to go up the sides about an inch).

Crust - combine the flour, confectioners sugar, and salt in a large bowl.  Cut in the butter to make a crumbly mixture.  Press the mixture into the greased pan.  Bake for 20 mins.

Filling - while the crust is baking, combine the eggs, sugar, flour and lemon juice.

I absolutely LOVE how yellow it is!

When the crust is done (it won't be completely cooked, but will start to be golden brown on the edges), pour the filling over the crust.  Bake for 25 more minutes.

Sprinkle with confectioners sugar after it has been out of the oven for a few minutes.  Once cooled, cut into squares and enjoy!

If you make these, which you should!  Please let me know!

xoxo, Meg
