I just made this. The crust did not spread so the lemon mix did not work on top. Will not make again as did not think it was vey lemon either.
This is in response to nramsey's post. To added more lemon flavor to these bars I zested one lemon in addition to the juice in the recipes. This added a refreshing tartness.
most lemon bars call for lots of eggs which i cannot have, so glad to get this recipe. Can you substitute lime juice?
good but not great.. bottom was crusty, top was runny.
I just made a batch of these partly because I had all the ingredients on hand. I squeezed in one lemon which was 1/4 cup juice. Tasted it and added another half a lemon. My bars were had a really nice lemon flavor. No need to add zest. I did over bake the crust just a bit which made them a bit hard to cut in places but they taste delicious. Bars popped out of pan no problem. I did make a mistake on the crust and used regular sugar. Crust still turned out quite nicely anyway,
