Time-Warp Lemon Squares

What you need: 

1 cup all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar

3 egg replacers (I use Ener-G Egg Replacer)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2-3 lemons, zested and juiced

powdered sugar, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust, in a bowl, combine crust ingredients and press into 8 X 8" pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
2. For filling, while crust is baking, beat the egg replacers in a bowl until foamy. Add the remainder of the filling ingredients and mix together. Pour over the crust, and bake 20 minutes more, or until set. Cool.
3. For topping, sift powdered sugar on top, if you'd like, and enjoy the trip down memory lane!
For fancier version, add a layer of vegan cream cheese mixed with a little powdered sugar over the baked crust before you pour in the filling. (You may have to cool the crust a bit before spreading the layer out.)

My kitchenphobic partner, who is trying to learn to cook, just made these... and they are PERFECT!  The lemons were really juicy, and we only used two, but they made the most wonderful, tart, scrumptious and gooey bars.  And the crust beneath is such a lovely shortbready tidbit.  Yummm!


I made these today and they were fantastic!  I forgot the vanilla, but they don't seem to be lacking for it.  Next time, which will be tomorrow, I will add more lemon juice because I like my lemon squares to be super lemony. :o  I forgot to mention that I only used 2 Tbsp of margarine in the crust.  The rest was applesauce.  When I make them tomorrow, I plan on using coconut oil instead of margarine.


I made these last night and when I went to take them out of the oven after 20 min they were very liquid-like & hadn't set up at all.  I re-read the directions and realized that I didn't pre-bake the crust.  I baked them for an extra 15 minutes and they turned out just fine!  Whew!  What a relief I hadn't ruined them because they were delicious.  Great recipe.


I just made these, using lime instead of lemon.  I made them as a treat to take to the cinema, but I'm really impatient and they smelled gorgeous, so I've already eaten one and they're still warm, but they are GORGEOUS.  Really easy to make and they taste fabulous.  I really can't fault this recipe AT ALL.
