DELICIOUS!!! I followed the advice of the other reviews and added 1 extra tablespoon of butter to the crust mixture and only baked the crust for 15 minutes. I really love lemon so I added a HEAPING tablespoon of zest and 4 tablespoons of juice. MMmmmmmmmm perfect flavor. My 8 year old was so impressed that he said "these are better than Grandmas" but we won't tell her that ;) Thank you!!
I liked the crust and enjoyed the overall taste of the bars when they were still warm. At room temp, however, there wasn't enough of the lemon filling to taste very "lemony." They tasted like shortbread with a little lemon curd on them. I may try doubling the lemon filling in the future.
This recipe was really good and better yet it was quick and easy. Instead of powdered sugar on the top for decoration I added a lemon icing(1/2 can sweetened condensed milk & 1/4 cup lemon juice) for extra lemony taste. Thanks for the recipe!
Baked the crust for about 15 minutes prior to adding the lemon curd, it only baked for 20 minutes with the curd and it was really kind of overdone....I also cut the sugar in the filling down to 3/4 cup and added a tablespoon more of lemon juice, We will make these again, just the right amount of sweet and tart
This was very Yummie...Will be my only lemon bar recipe :) As per other suggestions I added 1 tbs of butter to the crust and I used 1/2 cup granulated sugar instead of 1/4 cup powdered sugar. I baked the crust for 15 min and baked it with the lemon curd a little shy of 20 minutes. Just when it started to get golden on top, I took it out. SOOOOOO Good you gotta try it!!
These had a wonderful lemon taste, not too tart, not too sweet. We will mark this recipe as a "keeper".
Thanks for a great recipe.
These are wonderful. Light,lemony and easy to make. Will use this recipe over and over again. Thanks for sharing it!
These were fantastic! Made to take on a ski trip and half were eaten on the drive up!!! I baked the crust for only 15 minutes and it turned out perfect!
