Three Single-Serving Lemon Squares (Low-Sugar, Low-Fat)

This was a simple recipe that made use of a lot of leftovers, so technically the only thing I cooked was the lemon-filling. It won everyone's hearts over and now they might go into the "List of Party Things" so that I won't be mauled by guests. I'm not particularly a fan of lemon-squares, as I've had a few bad incidents with the boxed mix but I was prepared to see if mine was any better. While I'm still not a fan - I conclude that I was better.

(Lemon Filling Ingredients)
  • 1/4 cup of Lemon Juice
  • 3 tsp of Stevia
  • 1/2 tsp of Orange Zest
  • 1/2 Medium-Sized Orange Juice
  • 2 tsp of Cornstarch Slurry
  • 1 tbl Powdered Sugar

(Shortbread Topping Ingredients)

(Crust Ingredients)
  • I used an animal cracker recipe with 1/4 the oil and a bit of applesauce. You can use this tart recipe

  • For the lemon filling, heat everything except sugar until thickened. Then, remove from heat and add sugar.Set aside.
  • Prepare your pie crust.Free-form into squares and then chill your pie crust.
  • Poke a few holes in it, then bake in the oven for about 12 minutes.
  • Spoon some lemon filling on top followed by crushed shortbread topping.
  • Enjoy!

So, what's your favorite comfort dessert? Are you a fan of sweets other than lemon squares like me - or do you fawn over the sweet and tart tastes of this classic?
