Three layers with luscious lemon flavoring — a veritable burst of summer in each bite. They’re equally delicious milchig (dairy) or parve. They freeze well, too. Very refreshing!

- Cooking and Prep: 45 m
- Serves: 32
Prepare the Crust
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Combine flour, sugar, and zests in the bowl of a mixer. Add butter or oil and mix until mixture is crumbly.
Pat into a 9- x 13-inch (20- x 30-centimeter) pan lined with Gefen Parchment Paper.
Bake for 11–12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Prepare the Filling
Meanwhile, prepare filling in the same bowl (no need to wash it first): Beat eggs and sugar on high speed until light and lemony. Add remaining filling ingredients and mix well.
Pour over hot crust. Bake for 12 minutes.
Prepare the Topping
In a bowl, whisk together all topping ingredients until completely smooth. Carefully spread over filling.
Bake for seven minutes longer or until topping is set (it will not brown).
Cool well before cutting into bars.
