I made these on a whim and realized too late into my preparation that I had no lemons, so I substituted with 5-1/2 Tablespoons of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice. I also didn't have enough butter, so I used 1/2 c. margarine and 1/2 c. butter. In the end, these still turned out with delicious, buttery crust, and nice evenly sweet and tart topping, just like they should be! I have had bad luck with lemon bars in the past, so this time, I poured the lemon mixture onto the crust immediately after the crust was done, not letting the crust cool before returning it to the oven. I will definitely make these again, but with fresh fruit and all butter next time. Great recipe and so easy. Thank you for sharing!
