A tangy, sweet and superbly satisfying dessert recipe.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 45 minutes
Total: 1 hour 5 minutes



  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest (4 to 6 lemons)
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  7. Pour the mixture over the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is set.
  8. Let cool to room temperature.
  9. Cut into triangles and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
