💭 Recipe Tip
When I am not in a rush and need to make a crust like in this recipe, I like to use this trick to cut in the butter. I put the butter in the freezer until it's frozen solid. Then I use a box grater to quickly shred the butter. I then place the butter in a baggie and keep it in the fridge until I am ready to use it.
The amount of additional powdered sugar you sprinkle on top of these delicious lemon squares is totally up to you. However much you need to offset the tartness of the lemon filling.
