Lime Squares

The lime in this recipe gives a nice twist to classic lemon squares. You can substitute the lime juice and rind for lemon, if you prefer.


3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons grated lemon rind
1/2 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon icing sugar


In a bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and salt until fluffy. Stir in flour. Press into the bottom of a greased 9 by 13-inch pan. Prick with a fork. Bake at 325 degrees until golden, about
25 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat eggs, with sugar until thickened. Add lime rind and juice, flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat until smooth. Pour over base. Bake until edges are brown, about 30 minutes. Dust with icing sugar.
