    For the Crust

    • 2 cups (285 g) 1:1Gluten Free Baking Flour with xanthan gum
    • ½ cup (55 g) powdered sugar
    • 1 cup (8 oz) salted butter, cold (cubed)

    For the Filling

    • 6 large eggs
    • 2 cups (450 g) granulated sugar
    • zest of 2 Meyer lemons
    • ¾ cup (172 g) fresh Meyer lemon juice
    • ½ cup (72 g) 1:1Gluten Free Baking Flour with xanthan gum
    • Additional powdered sugar for dusting


    For the Crust

    • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
    • Add the flour and powdered sugar to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to mix then add the butter and pulse until combined and the dough starts to form a ball.
    • Remove the dough from the food processor and press into the bottom of the prepared pan, spreading it out evenly and to the edges. Bake at 350°F for 18 to 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.

    To Make the Filling

    • Whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour until completely combined. Pour over the baked crust and bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges are set and middle is still slightly jiggly.
    • Cool completely on a wire rack then refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Cut into 36 squares and serve at room temperature. Dust with additional powdered sugar before serving.


    • If you use a flour blend that doesn’t contain xanthan gum, add 1 teaspoon when making the crust and ¼ teaspoon when making the filling.
    • The weight measurement for the flour is based on Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 flour. Other flour blends will not weight the same cup for cup.
    • You can mix up the filling while the crust is baking. Do not cool the crust for long before you add the filling.
    • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
