About this recipe:I love lemon! These lemon slices are super juicy. If you like, you can also bake the base in a springform tin and make a lemon cake out of it. But as the lemon slices are very rich, I think an entire piece of cake would be too much of a good thing. The use of fresh lemon juice (or lime juice as a substitute), however, is a must!

Place 200g flour, icing sugar and butter into a food processor and process to fine crumbs. Using a dough scraper, scrape the mixture from the edge bottom of the processor so that everything is evenly mixed.
Spread the mixture into a rectangular glass baking dish, pushing the mixture up 2cm at the edge of the dish. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven.
Meanwhile, beat eggs, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice together with an electric hand mixer until fluffy. Sift 75g flour into the mixture (it really must be sifted as it really cannot be allowed to clump!) and beat again for 1 minute.
Take the base out of the oven and allow to cool slightly. Reduce temperature of oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
Pour the lemon filling over the base and bake for 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting. Refrigerate for best results.
