Lemon Squares

When I got married I received the most practical gifts from one of my husbands aunts…

…a recipe box full of her recipes…. Pretty neat…right?

That was 13 years ago…

I haven’t quite gotten around to making all of those recipes…there were a lot…

A little while ago I went through that recipe box and my eyes settled on this little gem…


Lemon Squares


2 Cups Flour

3/4 Cup Sugar

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Salt

2 Cup Coconut (optional)

1 Cup Margarine

I Pkg Lemon Pie Filling



Blend Together dry ingredients. Cut in butter and mix by hand until ingredients form a crumble. Press half of mixture in bottom of 9 x 9 pan. Prepare lemon pie filling and spread over the pressed bottom. Sprinkle remaining crumble over top but do not press.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

I love the tang of the lemon paired with the sweetness of the crumble – a perfect combination.

I love anything lemon…the perfect flavour.
