If you like lemons, try this recipe!
Even if you don't like lemons try this recipe!
It's really good!
Basically, this is a kind of simple recipe, depending on your expertise.
It takes about one hour to make(maybe more), but it's worth it.
Also, I just wanted to say: I based this recipe off Diana Rattray's, but I modified it, and added some hints and tips. I just said that so no one would try to sue my pants off.
sorry if some of the pictures are a bit blurry.- I was having camera problems............
Finally, I wanted to tell everyone that this is my first Instructable!! YYYYYAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Step 1: Gather Ingredients and turn the heat up!
Ingredients: 8 oz. butter ( 2 sticks)( you might want to melt the butter to make it easier to stir.)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour ( "wait a minute, you already said flour!"- Yes, I did already say flour, and no it's not a typo that there's flour 2 times. the first 2 cups are for the crust, the 4 tablespoons are for the filling- it makes more sense as you read on)
1/4 cup lemon juice ( it helps the juice come out if you roll the lemon around-hard- on a counter top, also you might want to use a strainer over the container you're squeezing the juice into because you don't want any pulp)
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel (this is for flavor as well as to help keep everything else together)
sifted confectioners sugar ( again, the first 1/2 cup is for the crust, the sifted sugar is to garnish on top)
While you are gathering your materials you might want to preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, so you don't have to wait for it.
