Mix together the flour, hazelnuts, baking powder, spices and salt. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and powered sugar. Beat in the lemon zest. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients. Press the dough into an ungreased 9-inch square baking pan.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the top is golden. Let cool in the pan or on a wire rack.
this was pretty tasty and the lemon zest adds a nice note. however the top was doughy even after cooking the full time plus 2 minutes. i ended up cooking another 5 minutes in convection bake mode. i should have used convection bake the entire time. HTH
