MJ Braun



2 sticks butter, softened
½ c. sugar
2. cups flour
Pinch of salt


6 eggs at room temperature
3 c. sugar
1 tbs. grated lemon zest (optional but highly recommended if you own one of those microplaners)
1 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 – 6)
1 c . flour

Cream butter and sugar together with mixer, add flour and salt and beat at low until just mixed. Dump on counter and bring together into a ball. Flatten with your hands and press it into a 9” x 13” cake pan, building up a ½ inch edge on all sides.

Bake at 350º for 15 -20 minutes or until very lightly browned. Let cool on a rack.

Whisk together the eggs, sugar, zest, lemon juice and flour until well blended. Pour over the cooled crust and bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes until the filling is set.

Let cool to room temperature. Cut into squares and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
