How to make it
- Mix together the base ingredients with a pastry blender or food processor (the mixture should resemble crumbs).
- Firmly pat it into a lightly sprayed 9x13 baking dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- While the base is baking, prepare the filling by beating the eggs together in a medium sized bowl.
- In a separate small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, flour and baking powder to make a smooth paste. Add some of the beaten eggs if necessary, to make it smooth and runny.
- Add the sugar and grated lemon rind to the beaten eggs, then stir in the flour mixture. Mix ingredients together until smooth and well blended.
- Pour filling over the hot base and return pan to oven.
- Bake an additional 25 minutes, until filling is set.
- Prepare the glaze by mixing all ingredients together until smooth and runny enough to drizzle over the filling.
- When the bars are removed from the oven, immediately use a fork to poke several holes in the filling with the fork tines, then quickly pour the glaze over the top of the bars and let it soak into the top and into the tiny holes made by the fork tines.
- Cool bars completely before cutting into squares.
