Lemon Squares for an Afternoon Tea Party

I went to a lovely little afternoon Tea Party at a friend's house today. It was perfectly gorgeous and dainty and everything a tea party should be.  I took along some lemon squares that I whipped up Saturday afternoon.  

These lemon squares take no time at all and a really easy to make.  The base is a shortbread mixture pressed into the tin and baked until just starting to turn golden.  The topping is a combination of eggs, sugar, baking powder, and lemon juice.   They really are that easy.  

A little dust of icing sugar finishes them off...but best not to dust before transit.


  1. Don't you just love a proper tea! These are simply perfect but I want to know all the details... what else was on the menu?

  2. I am all about the afternoon tea's with girl friends lately. These lemon bars must have been a lovely addition to the party.
