Step 1
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x12-inch baking dish with foil (to make lifting out easy). Lightly spray the foil with Non-Stick Baking Spray (to taste) .
Step 2
In a large bowl, stir together All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups) and Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup) . Cut the cold Butter (3/4 cup) into small pieces.
Step 3
Add to the flour mixture and using a pastry cutter or the back of a fork, cut the butter until it is in pea-sized pieces. Halfway through, add 1/4 tsp zest of the Orange (1) and 1/4 tsp zest of the Lemon (1)
Step 4
Press the crust mix into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Step 5
While the crust is baking, in the same bowl, whip Eggs (3) on high for about 3 minutes until light and frothy.
Step 6
Reduce speed to low, and beat in the Granulated Sugar (1 cup) , remaining All-Purpose Flour (3 Tbsp) , Baking Powder (1/2 tsp) , Salt (1/2 tsp) , and 1/3 cup of combined orange and lemon juice.
Step 7
When combined, pour over the prepared crust. Return to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the filling is set.
Step 8
Remove from the oven and carefully lift the foil and transfer to a wire cooling rack. Let cool completely, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired, cut and serve. Enjoy!
