Lemon Filling



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 20-cm (8-inch) square baking pan with a strip of parchment paper, leaving it hang over each side. Do not butter. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add the butter and mix well with your hands until the dough begins to form. Spread and press onto the bottom of the pan. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
