DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan (or use the Baker’s Edge pan, if you have one).
  • Begin by making the crust.
  • In a large bowl, cream together 1/4c sugar and 1/2c butter, until smooth and fluffy. Working at a low speed, gradually beat in 1 1/2c flour and 1/4t salt until mixture is crumbly. Pour into prepared pan and press into an even layer. Bake for about 17 minutes, until set at the edges.
  • While the crust bakes, prepare the filling.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine lemon juice, lemon zest, strawberry puree, sugar and eggs and process until smooth. Add in flour, baking powder and salt, then pulse until smooth.
  • Gently pour the filling over the hot crust when it has finished baking. Return pan to oven and bake for 23-26 minutes, until the filling is set (There will be a light colored “crust” on top from the sugar in the custard - nothing to worry about).
  • Cool completely before slicing and use a damp knife to ensure clean slices.
  • Store bars in the refrigerator, especially on a hot day.
  • Makes 24 bars.
