White Chocolate Lemon Squares
These are just as fresh and as sweet as they look. With a bright tartness from the fresh lemon juice and a creamy sweetness from the white chocolate, these little delights were simply amazing. I absolutely love the scent of lemon so these were not only a treat to eat, but also from me to make.
1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour (divided)
1 cup of sugar (divided)
1/3 cup of real un-salted butter
2 eggs (beaten)
1 1/2 lemons (zested/ juiced)
1 cup of white chocolate chips
powdered sugar for garnish
-Preheat oven to 350*. In a large bowl stir together1 cup of the flour and 1/4 cup of sugar; cut in butter with a fork (until crumbly). Press into a 9x9" square baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice along with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour and sugar. Once the crust is done, remove from oven and sprinkle with chips. Pour egg mixture evenly over the top and bake for another 15 minutes or until center is set and there's a light browning along the edges. Makes 16 squares. Enjoy!
