Sometimes I like Paula Deen’s recipes, and sometimes I don’t.  This is one that I REALLY like!


For the Crust:

2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces and at room temperature, plus more for the dish

2 cups flour

1 cup powdered sugar plus more for dusting

pinch of salt

For the Filling:

4 large eggs

2 cups sugar

6 tablespoons flour

6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with aluminum foil and butter the foil.  Make the crust by whisking the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.  Cut in the butter with your fingers to make a crumbly dough; press into the prepared baking dish.  Bake 20 minutes, then transfer to a rack and let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, make the filling by mixing the eggs, sugar and flour in a bowl with a fork.  Mix in the lemon juice.  Pour the filling over the crust and bake 25 more minutes; transfer to a rack and let cool completely.  Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.  Lift out of the pan and cut into pieces.
