Gluten Free Lemon Squares

Lemon Squares have been a tradition to make in my home mostly during the holiday season, but they make a great square to bring to any occasion during the year.

For those who are gluten-free and need a substitute, this recipe from Robin Hood Flour's website works well and tastes great.. I brought them to an event and they were eaten up, and not just by gluten-free attenders.

Enjoy them this holiday season along with your other holiday treats!

Ingredients

  • Base
  • • 1 ½ cups (375 mL)
  • • Robin Hood® Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • • ½ cup (125 mL) icing sugar
  • • ¼ tsp. (1 mL) salt
  • • ¾ cup (175 mL) cubed butter, cold
  • Filling
  • • 4 eggs
  • • ½ cup (125 mL) lemon juice
  • • 1½ cups (375 ml) granulated sugar
  • • ¼ cup (50 mL)
  • • Robin Hood® Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • • 1 tsp. (5 mL) baking powder
  • • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) grated lemon zest
  • • Sifted icing sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and line a 9” x 13” (3L) baking dish with parchment paper, overlapping two sides for easy removal.
  2. Base: Place flour blend, icing sugar and salt in bowl of food processor. Pulse until blended. Add cold cubed butter and process mixture until it looks like fine meal, about 15 seconds.
  3. Transfer mixture into prepared pan and press firmly onto the bottom of pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are golden.
  5. Filling: Beat eggs in a large bowl with a whisk. Add the sugar and beat until it is fully incorporated. Add the flour blend and baking powder. Whisk in the lemon juice and zest. Pour the filling over the hot crust and bake for an additional 18 to 20 minutes, or until the filling has set.
  6. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. For easy cutting, once pan is cool, place in refrigerator until squares are cold, about 1-2 hours. Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares.
