Megan's Lemon Shortcake

This is my scrapbooking consultant's yummy recipe. I love it as it's quick & easy to whip up for dessert or in my case afternoon tea at my Spring Mini Launch AKA Tart & Tangy - so thought this was an appropriate offering.

In a food processor pop in:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 100g butter
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
Mix until crumbly; don't wait for it to combine.
Press into a loose based flan tin.
Fan bake 180oC 15 mins.

Mix in a separate bowl:
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • Rind of 1-2 lemons; grated fine
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 beaten eggs
Pour over pre-cooked base in the oven (word of warning don't move the base or the lemon/egg mix will drip out) & fan bake at 180oC for another 15 mins.

Sprinkle with icing sugar to serve.
