Lemon Squares

Lemon Squares

Sometimes, after a very hearty and filling meal, all you want is a delicate little sweet. I suggest these tart and pretty little cake squares that will perfectly hit the spot. If you want to make a true hostess-with-the-mostest impression, try sprinkling powdered sugar on top through a paper doily to make a lacy pattern!
Serves 8 (2 each)

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 pourable Splenda granular
1/3 cup reduced-calorie margarine, melted
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free lemon gelatin
3/4 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs or equivalent in egg substitute
2 tablespoons powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-9-inch cake pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine flour, Splenda, and margarine. PRess mixture evenly into bottom of prepared cake pan. In a large bowl, combine dry gelatin, sour cream, and baking powder. Add eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on HIGH for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Pour lemon mixture evenly over crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the center is firm. Place cake pan on a wire rack and let set for 10 minutes. Evenly sprinkle powdered sugar over top, if desired. Continue cooling. Cut into 16 squares.

  1. So happy to find your blog. Somehow did not understand that you had this when on Healthy Exchanges Sparkpeople site. This is so much easier to look up the books I do not have.
