Reviews for Bake-Sale Lemon Bars
Sort By :
"Made these for a golf cookout...used fresh squeezed juice, 1/3 C and grated peel from 2 lemons, as suggested by another reviewer. People were crazy about these! Now, they want them at the next cookout. Super easy and tasty recipe!"
"Absolutely delicious. I've made them three times in as many weeks, and can't seem to have enough! So quick and easy to make. I needed them non-dairy, and I don't use margarine, so I substituted oil. It came out great!"
"Absolutely THE BEST lemon bars I've ever had! I incorporated some of the suggestions made by reviewers, & used the juice of fresh lemons, added the grated peel from one of them to the filling, & cut the sugar in the filling to 1 1/4 cups! Terrific & will make often!"
"Wonderful recipe! Easy to make and tastes great!"
"Excellent bars. I pressed the crust in the pan just enough to hold it together and it turned out light and fluffy. I used Meyer lemons which are a little mild so I added 2 t of grated rind. I would make them exactly like this again."
