(GUEST POST) Chef In Disguise: Euro Pane's Lemon Squares



Chef in Disguise is a Orthodondist by day, wife, mother, and passionate food blogger by night. I have been following her for some time and have come to regard her as a friend. She invited me to be a guest on her blog a few months ago. I enjoyed the experience so much that I wanted to return the favor and showcase her passion for food. Her food is a fusion of her eastern culture and the west. 
Thank you, Sawsan for sharing this delicious recipe with us. Please visit her blog for more of her delicious offerings and beautiful food photography.
Base:
2 cups (8.5 ounces) flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup (2 sticks) chilled butter, cubed
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl by hand, mix together the flour, powdered sugar and butter until they come together to form a dough.
Press the dough into a greased 9-inch-by-13-inch baking dish. Bake the crust until golden-brown, about 20 minutes. Remove and cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees to bake the bars.

Filling:
8 eggs
3 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups lemon juice (from 12 to 13 lemons)
1/2 cup (2.1 ounces) flour
Prepared crust
Powdered sugar for dusting
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and flour. Pour the filling into the prepared crust.

Place the dish in the center of the oven and bake at 300 degrees until the custard is set, about 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature, then dust with a light coating of powdered sugar before serving.
