My dog loves pastry and this is one of her favorites. I’ve been trying real hard to bake anything with no chocolate in them so I could share this with her.
She loves it and I love giving it to her that for some reason I’m beginning to plan what to bake according to her tastes.
For the Shortbread
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup white sugar
¾ cup butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line the bottom and side of an 8×12 inch rectangular baking pan with parchment paper, allowing it to extend over the sides for lifting the pastry after baking,
In a bowl, blend butter and sugar. Add flour and mix just until dough holds together. Press dough in the pan to form a crust. Bake for 15 minutes.
For the lemon filling
4 large eggs
1 ½ cups white sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
powdered sugar for sprinkling
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick and pale. Add flour then juice, mix until blended. Pour over hot crust and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until top is firm. Remove from oven and cool.
When cool, carefully lift from the pan using the extended paper. Slice into bars. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
