Gluten-Free Lemon Squares with an Almond Flour Crust

Gluten-Free Lemon Squares with an Almond Flour Crust
  • Crust:
  • 2 cups King Arthur Almond Flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, diced
  • Filling:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free cornstarch
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan or 9-inch round pan.
  2. To make the crust: Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, whisking to blend. Add the cold butter, working it in with your fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture is evenly combined and crumbly.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, shake to distribute, and press the crust into the bottom and about 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan.
  4. Bake the crust until it's light golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. While the crust is baking, whisk together the filling ingredients.
  6. Remove the crust from the oven, and pour the filling over the hot crust. Return the squares to the oven and bake them for 14 to 18 minutes, until the filling appears set.
  7. Remove the squares from the oven, and allow them to cool in the pan before cutting into 2-inch pieces. Cover the squares, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
