For the crust:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

For the filling:

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tbsp lemon zest

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 large eggs

2 tbsp all-purpose flour


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

To make the crust, mix the flour, softened butter, and sugar in a bowl until it resembles coarse crumbs. Press the mixture into the bottom of the greased baking pan, using your fingers or the back of a spoon to create an even layer.

Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes, or until it is lightly golden. Remove the crust from the oven and set it aside to cool.

To make the filling, beat the softened cream cheese and butter together in a mixing bowl until smooth.

Add the powdered sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the bowl, and continue to beat until the mixture is creamy and well-combined.

Add the eggs to the mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Stir in the flour, mixing until the mixture is smooth and well-combined.

Pour the filling mixture over the cooled crust, spreading it out into an even layer.

Bake the lemon squares for 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is set and lightly golden on top.

Remove the pan from the oven and let the lemon squares cool to room temperature before slicing them into squares.

Serve and enjoy your delicious and creamy lemon squares!
