Preparation

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  2. Place 1 1/3 cups flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, in a mixing bowl. Add the softened butter and mix with your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, stir together the brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and the baking powder in a bowl. Add the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice; whisk until the sugars have dissolved; pour over the crust.
  5. Return to the oven and bake until the lemon filling has firmed, about 15 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before cutting. Sprinkle Powdered sugar using a sifter on top.
  6. Ready to serve! And even better the next day! :)
