Top Review by Kalija

I made these for a Christmas party tonight. I'm thinking I should have made a double batch since I've already eaten three... these are yummy and so very easy. I used 3 lemons which was a little over 6 tablespoons of juice. Thanks for the recipe - I will make these again for sure!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix crust ingredients together.
  2. Pat mixture into a 9x13-inch pan.
  3. Bake 20 minutes at 350°F.
  4. While crust is baking, combine these filling ingredients first: beaten eggs, sugar, and lemon juice.
  5. Gradually add flour and baking powder to the mixture.
  6. Mix well until "frothy".
  7. Immediately after taking crust out of oven, pour in filling.
  8. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350°F
  9. Tip: Watch filling at 20 minutes – it should turn a little brown spotted on top, but not a lot.
  10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.
