- 1/4 cup (60 g) butter
- 3 tbsp (20 g) powdered sugar
- 1 tsp (5 ml)vanilla
- pinch of salt
- ¾ cups (90 g) flour
- 6 eggs
- ¾ cup (150g) sugar
- 2 tsp (10 ml) lemon zest
- 2/3 cup (160 ml) lemon juice
- ¼ tsp (1.25 ml) salt
- ¼ cup (30 g) flour
- powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 325F/(162C)
- Spay a 9” (23 cm) cheesecake pan with baking spray.
- Combine butter and powder sugar in an electric mixer then add vanilla and salt beat until combined and then add flour mixing until dough balls form. Flatten into a disk and roll out to ¼” (6 mm) thick. Doesn’t need to be perfect since you will just be pressing this into the tin and it’s a crumbly dough. Really doing this just for uniform thinness.
- Fit dough into pan pressing down to create a tight fit and making sure the dough is uniformly level. DO NOT PRICK DOUGH.
- Place tin in oven for 20 mins until baked and golden brown.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, zest, juice and salt, whisk until combined then add flour, whisk until smooth.
- Pour filling on top of shortbread and bake for 20-22 mins until filling is set. Allow to cool and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Before releasing slide a sharp knife around the edge of the tin to make sure pie will release easily. Then release pan.
- Dust with powdered sugar on top and cut into slices. Serve with homemade whipped cream and strawberries.
