At first that recipe was for as lemon squares … But some raspberries caught my attention at the market so I decide to make lemon square in a different way. I thought they would simply look and taste fantastic as pies topped with fresh raspberries. I was right! Raspberries and lemon is such an amazing paring.
You know what is also great with this recipe? If you want to enjoy the lemon taste only or if you’re out of raspberries, you can easily make lemon squares instead. You just need to cook it a little longer as the mould will be bigger. I use a square mould about 9 inches. So bake the crust about 20 minutes at 350 °F and 25–30 minutes more at 300 °F once you’ve added the lemon filling. Rules are the same. Crust needs to be golden and the filling set on edges with a centre slightly wobbly. Voilà …2 recipes for 1 HA-HA-HA See how much I love you?
