As these were baking, I read all the horrible reviews and wished I hadn't bothered. They turned out great! I followed recipe exactly (except I didn't have butter, so used margarine instead :() I will definately make again with butter and will try cutting it in cold as others have suggested. I added about 1/3 cup of shredded coconut to my base just because I love coconut and it was really good. I covered lightly with foil after about 15 mins because it started to brown and cooked for about an extra 5 mins. I was afraid the filling wasn't "set" but after chilling for a while, they were really good! Perfect lemon taste for my liking, not too much but just enough to make my mouth water. Maybe it depends on the type of pan used but I had no issues with removing mine and the crust was not hard as others have mentioned. I used a knife to loosen edges when just out of oven and cut into bars after chilling for about half an hour. Please give it a try before making all the changes others have made. If it doesn't work for you, THEN make adjustments. I thought it was great the way it is.
