Ingredients
Lemon Filling
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2cups granulated sugar
  • 1tbs lemon zest
  • 1tbs orange zest
  • 1/3cup butter, melted
Shortbread Crust
  • 2cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4cup butter, cut in cubes
Topping
  • powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a blender, combine the eggs, lemon juice, granulated sugar, lemon zest and orange zest. Process on high until smooth. Add the butter, replace the cover, and blend again on high until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine the flour and powdered sugar. Pulse a few times to combine. Add the butter and continue to pulse until the mixture looks sandy and the butter is fully incorporated into the flour and sugar.
  4. Place an 11-inch tart pan on a baking sheet. Pour the crust mixture into the pan. Press the mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  5. Pour the filling into the crust, then transfer the tart into the oven. Bake until the center is almost set, 30-35 minutes.
  6. Cool the tart completely. When ready to serve, sprinkle powdered sugar over the top and cut into slices.
