Sweet and Messy Lemon Somethings

So I managed to get away from Netflix long enough to get my butt into the kitchen because that sort of thing gives me a sense of accomplishment on another day of binge-watching. Once again this recipe is from the Yummly app (by now I really should get paid for promoting it!), pretty easy to make and extremely delicious! The original recipe called these creations “lemon triangles”, but it doesn’t really matter into what shape you cut them, they’ll end up looking messy anyways, so don’t bother. They probably have a gazillion calories in them, but if you’re wasting your time on TV series all day anyways – who really cares anymore?

Sweet and Messy Lemon Somethings

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar (in retrospective this can and probably should be cut by a cup! Depends on your sweet tooth though.)
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp lemon peel (optional – I was too lazy to grate for hours and hours)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • confectioners sugar (optional – it’s pretty sweet as it is, may make it look nicer though.)

Preheat oven to 350° F. Place aluminum foil in 13×9″ baking pan and grease it (cooking spray works great). Beat butter and 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy, add 2 cups of flour and beat until crumbly. Press mixture into prepared pan and bake for 20 min until crust is slightly golden. Beat eggs, remaining sugar and flour, lemon juice, lemon peel and salt until smooth. Pour over hot crust and bake for additional 20 min. Shapes and powdered sugar are up to you. Enjoy! 🙂
