To start making Lemon Fluff Square I separated three large eggs and set the whites aside for later.  I put the egg yolks in a microwave safe pyrex 8 cup measuring cup.

Then I added some cold water to the egg yolks and stirred them well.

Next I added in one envelope of lemon pudding and pie filling mix.

I used a wire whisk to stir the lemon pie filling in until it was all incorporated.

Then I added 2 cups of boiling water and stirred again to combine.

Once the mixture was well blended I put it in the microwave on High power for 2 minutes and cooked it until it boiled and thickened, stirring twice while it cooked.

After removing the lemon pudding from the microwave I placed it in the fridge to cool.  I stirred it every 5 minutes for about 15 minutes.  I wanted to be able to touch the bottom with my hand and it not be too hot.

While the lemon pie filling was cooling in the fridge I prepared the crust by combining some gluten free graham cracker crumbs and some margarine in a mixing bowl.

I used a fork to stir the crumbs and margarine together until the mixture was crumbly and the margarine was all incorporated.

Then I sprayed a 9″ x 13″ baking pan with cooking spray and spread most of the crumb mixture evenly on the bottom.

I pressed the crumbs down firmly to form a solid base.  I reserved 1/4 cup of the crumbs to sprinkle onto of the Lemon Fluff Squares later.

Next, I retrieved the egg whites I had set aside earlier.

I beat them with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks formed.

When I could touch the bottom of the pyrex measuring cup, the lemon pudding was in, I removed it from the fridge and used a large spatula to fold in the beaten egg whites.

Once combined I spread the lemon fluff mixture evenly over the graham cracker base in the baking pan.

Then I sprinkled the reserved graham crumbs over top of the lemon mixture.  I also had some lemon zest available so I added that to the top as well.

I put it in the fridge to chill and firm up for about 1 hour before serving.

This easy dessert recipe is best served cold and any remaining square should be refrigerated.

Melt in your mouth Lemon Fluff Square provides a refreshing burst of flavour on a warm day!
