Very tasty, although personally I think they could have used a little more tartness and lemon zest. (Other people were fairly evenly split on whether they were perfect or needed more lemon.) Following previous suggestions, I used 1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp. of lemon juice, added the zest of 1/2 lemon, and increased the flour to 1/3 cup, but next time I will add another 2 Tbsp of lemon juice and use the zest of an entire lemon. However, the lemon layer did set beautifully (in contrast to other lemon bar recipes I have tried), and the crust was wonderfully rich-tasting--I used salted butter, which gave a lovely flavor.
