With the abundance of citrus, I have made lime syrup and coconut muffins, fruit cordials and some orange and poppy seed cake. Thank goodness for the freezer so we don't have to eat it all at once. An old faithful recipe though for citrus (especially lemons), is Citrus Squares.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup plain flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tbsp plain flour
1/4 cup fesh citrus juice
Preheat oven to 180 deg C (350deg F)
Grease and line a square 20 x 20 cm baking tin.
Mix the pastry ingedients together in a bowl until they form a soft dough. Press the dough into the prepared tray and bake for 20 minutes.
To prepare the curd, mix the ingredients together in a bowl (I usually use the same bowl) and whick until smooth.
Remove the pastry from the oven after 20 minutes and pour the curd mixture over the top and return to the oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
Cool, slice into squares and dust with icing sugar.
