I have so many lemons in my garden I can’t give away enough!! So I decided to make a lemon slice yesterday – it was a great success and everyone loved them. I hope you enjoy them too!!
- 225g butter
- 3/4 cup icing sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup lemon juice (use fresh lemons)
- 4 Tbsp flour
Cream butter and sugar – add flour to make a shortbread. Press into a tin and bake at 180 degrees till shortbread is lightly browned around the edges (about 18-20 minutes). Remove from oven to cool.
Beat the eggs and sugar together till smooth. Add the lemon juice and then the flour. Pour over the shortbread base and return to the oven for about 20 minutes until lemon topping has set. When slightly cooled cut into slices. Top with sifted icing sugar if desired.
