How To Make Gluten and Sugar Free Lemon Bites

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients for CRUST and mix well until you form a dough.
  • Place dough in a round or circular oven safe dish. (No need to grease the dish due to the butter)
  • Pat down until the dish is covered with the crust. Bake crust for 10 minutes.
  • In a medium size bowl zest one lemon and add the juice of all 3 lemons, then add remaining lemon filling ingredients mentioned above.
  • Once crust has baked for 10 minutes pour lemon filling on top of crust and bake for 20 minutes. Filling will stiffen once cooled.
  • Cool in refrigerator for a least one hour before cutting into circles with a cookie cutter or you can simply cut into squares.
  • Top with sugar free powdered sugar if desired.
