Oh my goodness! This is one of the best things I've ever made. We served it more like a piece of pie and were able to savor it more by using a fork. I plan to make this often.

Ingredients You'll Need:

Step One

In a stand mixer, beat the butter, sugar, and lemon zest together. Add the flour and mix until incorporated.

Step Two

Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from crust from the oven and allow it to cool slightly.

Step Three

Add tofu, lemon juice, zest, and granulated sugar to a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract and process again until combined.

Step Four

Pour the lemon curd onto the cooled crust and gently tap it down to release any air bubbles.

Step Five

Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes until the lemon curd has set. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before placing in the fridge to set.

Step Six

Once the lemon curd has set completely, sprinkle them with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Recipe Tips and Tricks:

- Prevent the lemon bars from cracking by placing a shallow container of water underneath the lemon bars as they bake. - To get the most juice from your lemons, roll them around on your countertop to loosen the lemons and release their juices.  -  For clean slices, be sure to chill the lemon bars in the refrigerator prior to cutting them.
