DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • For the crust, cream the butter and sugar until light in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • Combine the flour and salt and, with the mixer on low, add to the butter until just mixed.
  • Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and gather into a ball.
  • Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into a 9 x 13 x 2" baking sheet, building up a 1/2" edge on all sides.
  • Chill.
  • Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned.
  • Let cool on a wire rack, leaving the oven on.
  • For the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, and flour, and pour into the crust.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes more, until the filling is set.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Cut into triangles and dust with confectioners' sugar.
