0 1/2 cup  margarine
0 1/2 cup  packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 cup  white all purpose flour
3 tsp  grated lemon rind
1 1/2 cup  sugar
0 1/2 cup  pure lemon extract
0 1/2 cup  cold water
2 tbsp  cornstarch
2 each  eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9x9x2-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In order to make the crust, in a large bowl, beat together the margarine, brown sugar, flour, and 1 teaspoon of the lemon rind, mixing just until combined. Add the mixture into the baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. While that is baking, in a 2-quart pot, mix together 1 cup of the sugar with the lemon juice, water, and cornstarch. Bring the mixture to a boil for about 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ½ cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon rind, and the eggs until thick and lemon-colored.
  5. Slowly beat the warm lemon mixture into the egg mixture until well combined. Pour the filling onto the prepared crust and bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool before cutting it.
