I like to have something lemon for dessert on Easter, and since I don't do meringue well I decided to try this in place of lemon meringue pie. I expected something more like a pie, which this is not. However, my review is based on the actual product, not my expectations. I thought the taste of the lemon was excellent--nice and tart. Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't find the crust to be crumbly. I think the secret is cutting the butter in well and pressing the crumbs down firmly to form the crust. I thought the crust was a little too sweet. Personally, I don't think the lemon layer is thick enough in relation to the crust, and if I made this again I might double the filling amount.

These were just OK. I used egg beaters to reduce the cholesterol, and the filling tasted just so-so. The crust was good though, although 3/8 c butter is an odd measurement, isn't it? (it's 6 Tbls for anyone that doesn't want to have to translate cups to tablespoons :-)

Overall, I found this recipe to be quite good. It is a perfect blend of sugar and lemon. Not too sweet or too tart. My only complaint would be that it was not clear how much filling there would be. I completely covered the pie pan(which is about 2" deep and 9" across) with the crust. When I put the filling in it only reached halfway. So for further reference to others, the crust will only need to cover half to two-thirds of the pie pan. Other than that, this is a truly delicious recipe!

Instead of one large pie, i poured the mixture into a bunch of small torte shells - it turned out wonderfully!

This recipe was quick and easy to make. The taste was great, it wasn't so sweet that you forgot it was supposed to be lemon like so many other recipes. If you are planning on doubling the recipe like I did, I would recommend making a triple batch of the lemon filling and doubling the crust. Thanks for sharing.

This is great! I made it in an 8x8 glass pan and it turned out perfectly. I cooked mine for EXACTLY 15 minutes in a gas oven and it was just right. One time I left it in there for closer to 20 minutes and it wasn't great, but still edible. Thanks!

These refreshing bars are just delicious and so easy to make. Next time, I may cut back just a bit on the sugar, as we like them tart. Will also need to double the recipe, as they went too fast!

So lemony and delicious! I thought the crust was going to be dry because it was before baking, but it came out perfect!! I didn't make any changes and can't wait to make it again :)
