We like lemon desserts to be very tangy, so I doubled the lemon juice and reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup. Very good and very tart. I'm going to test them on my mother-in-law this week, as she also likes her desserts really lemony.
I used a graham cracker crust because I didn't have any wafers and this was still amazing. Tasted like lemon cheesecake bars!!!
These were excellent! Very Creamy with a good amount of lemon flavor. I followed the recipe exactly. Will be making again!
These are simply to die for! My husband is a big lemon fan, so I made these for him. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out wonderful!
This recipe was easy, very tasty, and very good. It's better than the store brought lemon squares.
I made these for work and got lots of compliments and requests for the recipe. It's like lemon cheesecake.
Nice cool, creamy dessert. I didn't have Nilla waffers, so I used 10 graham cracker squares instead. I also didn't have a lemon to zest, but if I did I know it would have had stronger lemon flavor. Will make again the given way. It was more like lemon cheesecake!
Easy and tasty! I thought they were a nice change from the traditional lemon bars.
I didn't put the extra lemon zest on top, just because I didn't feel like grating more, and it tasted just fine!
