Have you been over to The Dessert Carnival at The House In The Roses this morning? Cielo, you were so wonderful to plan this delicious event, and I appreciate all the hard work you did preparing. Everything is beautiful.
1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer. Combine flour and salt and, with the mixer on low, add to the butter until just mixed. Dump the dough onto a well-floured board and gather into a ball. Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking sheet, building up a 1/2-inch edge on all sides. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Leave the oven on.
6 jumbo eggs at room temperature
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup flour
Whisk eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and flour.
Pour over the crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the filling is set.
Let cool to room temperature.
Cut into squares, bars or triangles and dust with confectioners' sugar
