When I saw that I have to cook with yogurt, immediately I thought of something zesty and tangy. I love love love lemons if you do not know by now and I was busy looking for recipes for lemon and yogurt, both of which I major love.
I found this recipe online and I love that it incorporate both lemon and yogurt and also cause it will bring me back the taste of the fudge I fell deeply in love for when I went to NZ few years back.
Nestlé's yogurt is one of the yogurt I take on a regular basis whether for cooking or just direct consumption. I love adding yogurt into dishes especially cakes because of the extra tanginess. I even use them for dips.
Anyway, back to my Lemon Squares. Below is the recipe.
This recipe should give you 16 squares. Else you can cut smaller squares and have more pieces. I love to have them small so that I can eat two. Although I will eat two even if they are big squares =x
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup margarine, softened
2 tablespoons Nestlé low-fat plain yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg white
1 lemon rind, grated
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons icing sugar
1. First, combine flour, sugar, margarine and yogurt in food processor or blender. I used my Thermomix for this.
2. Pour the mixture into a lightly-greased 8-inch-square cake pan. Press evenly.
3. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until golden.
4. For the topping: Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, egg, egg white and lemon juice and rind in a food processor or bowl.
5 Mix well.
6 Pour topping over base and bake an additional 35 minutes or until top is set. Sift icing sugar over top when cool.

Love the base because I added this. Smells super awesome! I could just eat the raw crumb! Although I don’t think it will taste nice cause it is flour but the butter and the Nestlé Yogurt makes it smell so good!
