This did not turn out how I expected. Did NOT look anything like the picture or lemon bars I ahve made in the past. Tastes ok, but wasn't what I wanted...

This needed tweaking for the shortbread. I used butter and left out the raisins. I added raspberries for contrast flavors. It looked brown on top when it was done, so I might cook the base differently.

Followed the recipe exactly and it was more of a cake than a true lemon bar. It looks nothing like the picture provided. If i wanted to make lemon bread I will use this recipe. Otherwise I will look else where for a true lemon bar.

These had an excellent flavor and chewy texture--on the outside edges that were cooked correctly. The middle was very "sludgy" and remained so even after an extra 15 minutes of cooking. I think next time I'll try it in an 11 x 7 pan, and perhaps drop the oven temperature to 325. I used dried cranberries, they were a wonderful replacement for the raisins.

These were good, but I think they would have been better if I'd followed the recipe exactly. I fudged a little on the brown sugar because I ran out, and so I added a cup of mixed powdered sugar and molasses. I do not recommend this, as the molasses takes over the flavor.
