DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a 20 x 35cm tin with baking paper.
  • Put crust ingredients into a food processor and pulse to produce fine crumbs. Press the crumbs firmly into the base of the prepared tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove it from the oven and reduce the temperature to 140°C.
  • Whilst the crust is baking, make the filling; whisk the eggs, sugar, and honey together till very thick and pale. Stir in lemon juice, zest, and then the sifted flour. Pour the filling over the crust and bake for 40 minutes or until set.
  • Cool completely before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into squares. Use a hot knife to cut neat squares
