Make Shortbread Crust

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x9 pan.

  2. Dump the mixture into the pan press to flatten evenly in the pan. 
  3. Bake the crust about 20 minutes, until very lightly browned. 
  4. Let cool on a wire rack.
  5. Leave the oven on.
    Make Lemon Filling  
    1. For the filling, whisk together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and MinusG's Perfect Pie Crust Mix. 
    2. Pour over the crust and cover with foil.
    3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the filling is set. 
    4. Let cool to room temperature.
    5. Cut into triangles and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
