Have I mentioned that, "I LOVE LEMON!!!!"

Lately I can't get enough lemon. I'm drinking lots of lemonade, I keep making the Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes, and then...I needed Lemon for dessert! I decided to make Tart Lemon Triangles

For this recipe you need: Eggs, Butter, a whole lemon, powdered sugar, granulated sugar and flour.

I used my pastry cutter to add the butter to the flour and powdered sugar. The mixture seemed really dry, but I pressed it into the bottom of my pie plate anyway, and I baked for about 15 minutes at 350.

Little hands did help make this recipe :) I zested one lemon into my mixing bowl. My lemon gave me exactly 1/4 cup of juice!!!

Stir in the eggs and sugar and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

Pour over the hot crust and return to the oven. You are supposed to bake until firm...the took about 25 minutes for me.

Allow to cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve. I couldn't even wait until it cooled. This was so yummy that I even convinced myself it was ok to have for breakfast one day with a bowl of fruit :) I see myself making this again VERY soon!
