We have so many lemons on our tree this year I've been trying to come up with ways to use them. I have not made lemon bars in many years and couldn't find my old recipe so searched through All recipes and I'm glad I found this one. I basically followed the recipe, making some cuts to try to make them a little "healthier". I followed some of the changes from other members, decreased the butter to 3/4 cup, 3/4 cup confectioners sugar, added 1/4 tsp. salt and added 1 tsp. baking powder to the crust, because I goofed! It was great anyways. I also added 1 tsp. baking powder to the filling, used 1 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 cup fresh lemon juice and 2 Tbsp. lemon zest. I cooked the crust at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes. I cooked the filling about the same time. It was a little bit brown and I thought I had cooked them too long, but they were perfect! After they were cool, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. I'm sure they would be great as written, I just wanted to lighten it up a little bit. Great!!!!
