Lemon Squares

15 Jan

Rafe and I ran the half marathon today– and both finished with personal bests! (1:40 for me, 1:53 for him) Feeling good! After too many mimosas and a nice afternoon nap, we are finally getting after the business of food. I whipped up an old favorite, that my mom would make for me pretty frequently growing up, lemon squares.

This one is slightly healthier (ok, not really healthy, one stick of butter) with the splenda sugar.


  • 1/2 c butter (one stick)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 c powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup splenda sugar blend
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • juice and zest from one lemon


  • Preheat at 350
  • Melt butter and mix up with the flour and powdered sugar. Put into 8×8 pan and press down with your fingers. Bake for ~20 min or until slightly golden.
  • Mix up remainder of ingredients (use whisk). Once you take the pan out of the oven, pour the lemon mixture over the crust and replace into oven for another ~20-25 min, or until slightly golden. Mmmm. Delish.
