I was so excited to try these based on the reviews, but I was so disappointed! The crust pretty much disintegrated into the lemon layer and became nonexistent. So the bars stuck pretty bad in the pan even though I put down heavy duty foil and sprayed the foil. Also the cheesecake part wasn't very good and the textures of the layers are so different it's weird to eat - the cheesecake is creamy, the lemon/crust layer was more chewy. Also they baked uneven, I started at 30 min and the middle was still very underdone even though 3 of the sides were done. I increased by 5 minute increments and I think I ended at 45-50 minutes. Even when done and cooled there was no way to cut these and have them be pretty. If you do attempt these, don't worry about the layers, they will separate like the other reviews say. Also definitely use a different crust, maybe a graham crust would work better.
