Fresh Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are a wonderful snack in summer. This delicate treat is made with fresh lemon and icing sugar. Wonderful with tea.

The lemon filling was excellent! I loved it. The crust had a real good flavor, but was VERY crumbly.

Ok. Guess I messed this one up. To me, the bars tasted like a big pile of flour...maybe I didn't back the first part long enough (It was browned, though). I also thought it needed more "goo" aka lemon mixture. Very disappointed.

This was good, but not great. Some reviewers said too lemony, some said not enough, so I made it as-is. It was not terribly lemony, I would like it more lemony, but that's my taste. Also, some reviewers said there wasn't enough lemon topping - I agree. I would double that next time. But they were good and everyone I shared them with liked them, I had just hoped for something a little more tart and with at least as much lemon stuff on top as crust.

After reading the reviews that said that crust and/or filling should be doubled, I actually made the recipe as suggested, but put it in a 9x9 pan. Worked out fine, though I'll definitely double the filling next time for more gooey lemon. FYI, it is a very custardy looking bar, but tastes great.

I followed the recipe exactly, but doubled the lemon top and found the crust's taste to be bland and lost in the filling. The lemon was more gel-like rather than creamy like I was looking for. It did have good lemony flavor though. I probably will look for another recipe.

This recipe was yum! I have a Meyers lemon tree in my backyard and needed something to make with them. I doubled the lemon juice and the powdered sugar in the filling.

These were quite good, but the crust got very crumbly after they cooled.

my first time making lemon bars from scratch and the family loved them. they were a little thinner and crisper than I remember eating as a kid, but we ate half the batch in one sitting, so I can't complain. Next time I think I will double or at least 1 1/2 the amount of lemon filling, but it was a hit regardless!

This was recipe and it was pretty easy with few ingredients. I liked the crust it was crumbly and delicious. I would have baked it maybe 20 mins rather than 25 however. I did have to double the filling because I had to use a 9x11" pan but it was ok. I think it was just a tad too lemony and I would have taken about 1/4 of the lemon zest out. Otherwise it was good.
