Making the Simple Lemon Squares
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 

  • Mix 1 cup flour, butter, and powdered sugar in a medium bowl with a pastry cutter or wooden spoon.

  • Using your hands or the back of a spoon, press mixture evenly into the bottom and about ½-inch up the sides of an ungreased 8×8 pan.

  • Bake this for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, beat the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Pour over hot crust.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and no indentation remains when touched lightly with a finger.
