Here again with a new thing~ My Owner and me love desserts with strong colors~ In that way, they look more delicious and interesting to taste~ ^^ Like this green color, for example. My Owner loves things with red color so much; it always reminds him the sweetest drink he must have to calm his thirst~ But when it’s about desserts, he loves having a rainbow on his plate, hehe~

Preparation:

Time: 1 hour

Preheat oven to 350.

To make the crust, combine the confectioners sugar, flour and sea salt in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter and work with your fingers until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Press into a greased nine inch pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.

To make the filling, whisk together the granulated sugar and flour in a bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add the zest, lime juice and enough green food coloring to produce desired green color (but not enough to make your filling neon! watch out) and mix until everything is smooth and combined.

Pour filling over hot crust and return to oven to bake for another twenty minutes. When done, the filling will no longer jiggle. Let cool completely in the pan before slicing and dusting with powdered sugar.
