Crust

Preheat oven to 180°C and grease an 8-inch square pan.

Combine flour, SPLENDA® Granulated and salt. Cut in butter until a rough crumbly texture. Press into prepared pan and bake for 18 minutes. Cool completely before filling.

Filling

Reduce oven temperature to 160°C. In large bowl, beat cream cheese to soften, then whisk in sour cream. Whisk in SPLENDA® Granulated, then eggs, until smooth. Whisk in lemon juice and zest and pour over cooled crust.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until filling no longer jiggles when pan is moved. Cool to room temperature, then cool for at least 4 hours before slicing.

 

Lemon squares will keep up to 4 days refrigerated.
