Easy Lemon Curd Bars Recipe

Publisher Photo
A cup of tea looks lonely without something sweet beside it. These bars are a nice accompaniment. I love the combination of the nutty crust and zippy lemon curd.—Donna Spenser, New Virginia, Iowa

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 20, 2014

I think maybe 10 oz of curd would help fill up the extra space on crust. I also used some quick oats in the crust for a more crumbly topping. Easy and quick recipe!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2014

Made exactly as directed. Thought it was the perfect amount of lemon curd. Quicker and easier than my usual lemon bar recipe and very tasty!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 9, 2014

This is great recipe but the lemon curd/crust ratio is off. It needs double the amount of lemon curd.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2014

I made these but found there wasn't enough lemon curd to spread across the whole pan, but I had a jar of orange marmalade on hand so used that to fill in all the empty spaces and that worked great! These taste wonderful! Will definitely make these again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2013

Great recipe!! I cheated and began with a sugar cookie mix. Followed directions on box and reserved crumbs as this recipe calls for. The addition of lemon curb, coconut and almonds makes the stand above 'normal' lemon bars. These bars are beautiful enough for a fancy cookie platter but easy enough to make for after school snack. Highly recommend this lemony treat!
