I made a half batch following the recipe (no modifications). The filling looked set and browned after just 22min at 350F so I took it out of the oven. (Maybe it is just my oven, but I would recommend keeping an eye on them after about 20min.) The flavor is just ok, not quite lemony enough for my taste. I think I would prefer a higher filling to crust ratio. After making the recipe, I read reviews with suggestions to increase the filling, use extra lemon juice, and put lemon zest in the crust. Those modifications sound promising, but I think I'll try a different lemon bar recipe next time.
Follow up note after overnight refrigeration: the filling consistency was better, but the crust had become rather hard. A hard crust was mentioned in other reviews as being a result of using melted butter in the mix.
