Show of hands if you’re a lemonhead! I must admit I was never really a fan of lemon flavored desserts at first, but this recipe has most definitely changed my mind. This is another amazing recipe that belongs to my mother-in-law, Crissy. And it will be added to all the other Recipes From Mom I’ve collected. :)
This recipe has two parts to it: the crust and the filling. The ingredients for both parts are very minimal and super simple. I used a regular sized cookie sheet that was about 15.5” x 10.5” and only about ¾ of an inch deep. The tricky part about the filling is that it will fill your baking pan to the brim and sometimes bubble over so make sure to put a larger pan under it to prevent making a mess in your oven. Or, if you really prefer, you can always use a deeper pan. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly as it might take longer if you use a deeper pan that makes thicker lemon squares.
Make sure to top them off with some powdered sugar while they're still warm (and maybe a few lemon slices!) These lemon squares are dangerously addicting so make them at your own risk because you won’t be able to stop eating them. Read on for the full recipe!
