sifted all-purpose flour
sifted confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups
This recipe was lovely!!! The base recipe is some what larger than the filling so I doubled the filling mixture, and it turned out perfect!
This recipe was good, but far too much crust to enjoy the lemony filling. I will cut down the flour, not the sugar in this one.
Great recipe, but I agree that the original recipe is just too sweet. I used 1 1/4 cups of sugar in the lemon mixture (the original recipie calls for 2) and still found it a tad too sweet. I plan on using only 1 cup in the future.
I was impressed with these squares. They are very easy to make- I opted not to put the walnuts and instead used coconut. I also followed a couple of the reviews and added less sugar.
These squares are FANTASIC!!!!!! I didn't change a thing in the recipe. It was perfect! Great job. Thanks for the recipe.
I am obsessed with lemon squares, and although these were not the best I have tried, they were a good "bar type cookie". I am partial to a gooy lemon filling and a melt-in-your-mouth type crust. The filling was just ok and the crust was a tad too thick. But, they were loved by everyone else (who are not as picky as me about lemon squares!)
This recipe was great! I tried it with less crust as some people said, and it was too thin. Next time, I will use the normal amount of crust, and I will add more filling.
Good but way too sweet. I'll make this one again, but I'll cut the sugar by at least 1/2 cup. The cookie part was just right in a 9x12" pan. Thanks!
