Instructions

For the Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 350℉.
  • Line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

For the Filling

  • While the crust is cooling, in a medium bowl, combine the lemon filling ingredients. 
  • Mix until well incorporated.
  • Then pour over the crust. Bake for 15-20 minutes more.
  • Next, put the pan in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to allow the lemon loaf to harden and cool before slicing into bars.
  • Cut into 10 bars and enjoy!
