It looked wonderful and smelled great but it was taken to some new neighbors. One of these days will have to make and try myself. Thanks for posting the recipe.
I have made these for years - and they've always been well received. I use all the frosting on the second layer, however, and once cooled just dust them with 10 X sugar lightly. For a stronger lemon taste, try grating a bit of lemon zest into the top layer before baking.
Follow up to review- made them using a spice cake mix and butter cream frosting. They were even better! The twist gave it an entirely different taste. They were so good, rich and comforting.

I am always looking for new lemon bar recipes. After reading all the reviews for these bars I was a little skeptical. However, these are WONDERFUL! Easy to make and assemble. They cut very easy, looked beautiful on serving plate. Tasted great. I must admit the top layer was a little "thin". However, a pretty dusting of powder sugar made them show worthy! YUMMY!!
