Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease an 8″ x 8″ square baking pan.
In a medium bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Cut in the cooled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press the mixture into the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until light golden brown.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of the flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, and heavy cream. Pour mix over the baked crust.
Return to oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until filling is cooked through and golden brown.
We take it out of the oven and let it cool to room temperature.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar before slicing and serving.
