Lemon Filling Ingredients


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking dish with parchment paper and set aside
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Add the flour, stirring until fully combined.

    Not very healthy ingredients. Perhaps some substitutes could have been suggested for those who care about such things.
