So my lime tree is exploding limes, naturally, I am looking for any and every way to use them (extra Limey gin and tonics?!). About this recipe. It was alright. I went with some of the comments and doubled the lime juice and zest and I also used only about half of the crust and doubled the filler. Here's a list of what I liked: the glaze absolutely is necessary because the filler doesn't have any sugar so without the glaze it will be too tart, the added food coloring, the tartness mixed with sweet crust/glaze (it's hard to find a good tart lemon or lime bar), definitely glad I halved the crust and doubled the filling. Things I did not like: the crust was not crust like it was almost chewy...needed more flour or maybe shortening instead, next time I'm going to go with the suggested amount of lime...maybe a hair more. Otherwise the bars were yummy...but remember one thing folks...use the glaze!!!!!
