Lemon Squares

This recipe came from long-time family friend and the bestest cook ever, Faye Tieche. She was Aunt Faye to our kids, Miz Tieche to Dick when he worked for her in the school cafeteria back in middle school. We miss this wonderful lady!

2 c sugar
4 Tbsp Lemon juice
½ tsp salt
1 c butter, softened
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 c flour, sifted
½ c powdered sugar
1 lemon rind, grated

Make dough of flour, powdered sugar, and butter. Knead together with salt. Spread in 9x12 ungreased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Beat remaining ingredients with wire whisk; pour over baked dough and bake again at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Allow to cool in fridge at least two hours. Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar, then cut into squares.


  1. Mmmm, these sound delicious! I can't wait to try them one day soon, espeically knowing it's Aunt Faye's recipe.

  2. I ♥ the Lemon Squares I'm use to getting in New England. I'll have to try these and see if they're as good!
