- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 lb butter
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 lemon peel, grated
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2-3 tbsp sour cream

- Mix the butter with flour until coarse crumbs form.
- Then add the sugar and baking powder and mix well.
- Add one egg, lemon peel and the lemon juice and sour cream to make a medium soft dough.
- Roll ¾ of dough to fit a 9’’x13’’ pan, then spread Apricot jam over the top of it.
