Just because you’re eliminating gluten in your diet, it doesn’t have to mean eliminating fun and good taste. These lemon squares have a slightly nutty shortbread crust and a delicious bright lemon filling that offer the perfect balance between tangy and sweet.

  • Crust
  • 2 Cups Almond Flour
  • 6 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Gluten-Free Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Cold Butter (Diced)
  • Filling
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Gluten-Free Cornstarch
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Powdered Sugar For Dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease 8 inch square pan. I like using a glass baking pan for this recipe. Set aside.
  3. In medium-size bowl combine almond flour, sugar, cornstarch, and kosher salt. Add cold butter pieces and work into dry ingredients with pastry blender or your fingers until mixture is crumbly.
  4. Transfer crust mixture to prepared baking pan. Evenly distribute and press crust into bottom and about 1/2 inch up sides of pan. Place in oven 10 minutes until golden brown.
  5. While crust is baking make filling ingredients. In medium-size bowl beat eggs, sugar, and lemon juice. Add kosher salt and cornstarch. Beat until cornstarch has dissolved.
  6. Remove pan from oven and pour filling over hot crust. Return to oven for another 15 minutes until filling appears set.
  7. Remove from oven and cool in pan before cutting. Cut into 2 inch pieces and transfer to serving plate. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
  8. Makes 16
