Reviews for Bake-Sale Lemon Bars

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,
I made these for Easter and was disappointed. I used fresh lemons as suggested and they still were not very lemony. They were just okay...not worth the time of effort in my opinion. Will continue to search for a lemon bar recipe...
I am not a HUGE lemon fan, so this was perfect for me! A nice amount of flavor, and my kids devoured it! I did add about a 1/4 cup of crushed pecan to the crust. Amazing! Thanks for the recipe. It's my go-to now. In fact, I'm making another batch right now!
