Lemon Squares

ingredients:

For the crust:

200g Self-raising flour (about 1 ½ cups)

120g Light brown sugar (1/2 cup packed)

120g Butter (roughly ¼ lb.)

 

For the filling:

2 eggs, beaten

240g Light muscovado sugar (1 cup firmly packed)

140g Dessicated coconut (1 ½ cups)

4g Salt (½ teaspoon)

20g Self-raising flour (2 Tablespoons)

4g Baking powder (½ teaspoon)

4g Vanilla (½ teaspoon)

190g Chopped or ground walnuts (1 cup)

 

For the Glaze:

20g Melted butter (1 generous Tablespoon)

Juice of 1 large lemon, or 2 small lemons (absolutely not bottled lemon juice!)

170g Icing sugar (about a cup)

 

method:

  1. For the crust, combine ingredients and press into 9x13" rectangular pan. 
  2. Bake at 160 degrees Celsius  for 10 minutes until golden brown.
  3. For the filling, beat eggs with sugar.  Stir in the rest of the filling ingredients. 
  4. When combined, spread gently and evenly on top of warm crust.  Bake for 25 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients and beat with a small whisk or fork until smooth.  Ensure any small white lumps of icing sugar or lemon seeds are gone. 
  6. While the filled crust is still warm, spread with glaze.  The glaze will be thin, so drizzle it on top and spread it over the bars. 
  7. To serve, wait until the glaze has set and cut into twenty four two-inch squares.  There's no need to refrigerate.
