For the crust

  • 46 g flour 1/3 cup +1 tsp
  • 10 g almond flour 2 tsp
  • 50 g room temperature butter 3 tbsp +1 tsp

For the filling

  • 2 eggs
  • 90 g granulated sugar 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp
  • 70 ml lemon juice
  • 35 g flour 1/3 cup


  1. Preheat the oven at 350°F (180°C), grease your 4” square springform pan (or equivalent)* and line with parchment paper .

  2. For the crust: In a medium bowl, with your hands (best way to do it) or a pastry cutter/fork, mix the ingredients until a dough forms.

  3. Place the dough 15 min in the fridge.
  4. Bake for 17 min while you prepare the filling.

  5. Whisk the eggs, sugar and lemon juice. Fold in the flour and whisk vigorously. If there are lumps, pour the lemon mixture in a strainer before pouring it in the shortbread base.
  6. Get the shortbread base out of the oven (still on) and pour the lemon filling onto it.   —Sprinkle almond halves if you want--
  7. Bake for 17 minutes and let cool before enjoying. You can dust powdered sugar all over it, it’s really not that that can change the calories!

Recipe Notes

*You can use a traditional 8” square pan and make a limit as best you can at the middle or double the recipe.
