  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 2 limes
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Confectioner’s Sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 13X9” pan with foil.
  3. Pulse the butter, 2 cups of flour and ½ cup sugar in the bowl of a food processor until it looks like coarse sand. Press this into the bottom of your prepared pan. Bake 15-20 minutes until lightly browning on the sides.
  4. While the base is cooking, prepare the filling. Mix together the remaining 1 ½ cups of sugar, ¼ cup flour and the finely grated zest of the limes and lemon and a good pinch of salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and the juice of the lemon and limes. Add the eggs and juice to the dry ingredients and whisk until well blended. Carefully pour the filling over the back of a large spoon onto the cooked base.
  5. Return the pan to the oven and cook for 20 minutes until the topping is set.
  6. Cool completely, cut into bars and dust with confectioner’s sugar.
