You knead the crust

Combine the flour, confectioners’ sugar & soft butter
It may help to ditch the spoon and use your hands!
Once combine, flatten into pan & bake for 20mins

On to the gooey part…

Use and electric mixer to blend  remaining ingredients of
Eggs, white sugar, flour, and lemon juice and zest until frothy
Add in 6-9 drops of Lemon Vitality and pour over hot crust

Just chill out!

Bake an additional 20-25 minutes then let it cool
This might not be a bad time to clean up that mess
Once it’s solid in the middle, cut and enjoy!
Don’t forget to add the powdered sugar too ; )

We’d love to see the crumbly leftovers of your treats
Why not try it again and use Lime, Grapefruit or Orange?
Young Living makes all of those Vitality oils too : )
