    This lemon slice is topped with cream cheese cheesecake for a double layer slice that is as pretty as it is delicious. Great sweets for pot lucks.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 1 1/2 cups (190g) plain flour
    • 1/2 cup (80g) icing sugar
    • 190g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups (330g) white sugar
    • 1 tablespoon plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly butter a 33cm x 23cm oblong cake tin.
    2. Whisk together 1 1/2 cup flour and icing sugar in a mixing bowl. Cut in the cold butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press the crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared baking dish to form a base.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
    4. Whisk together 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl. Pour lemon mixture into the prepared base. Skim off any bubbles from the surface of the filling. Mix the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar in a bowl until well blended. Whisk in 2 eggs then spread over the lemon mixture. The mixtures will separate during baking.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is set, about 30 minutes.
